Hawaii Proud Boy leader Nick Ochs arrested after Capitol siege | SF Gate |

Nick Ochs, the leader of the Proud Boys Hawaii chapter, was arrested by federal authorities Friday in connection with Trump supporters' deadly siege of the U.S. Capitol to halt Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden's Electoral College victory.

Ochs, a failed Hawaii state legislature candidate, snapped a photo of himself inside the building smoking a cigarette. "Hello from the Capital lol," Ochs wrote in his post. He was also widely featured in photographs of the unruly mob storming the building.

The FBI told KHON-TV in Honolulu that Ochs was arrested at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu by agents on Thursday.

(His Attorney) Breiner asserted Ochs does not support the Capitol riot. "I don't approve of what happened. I want to be clear about that," he said. Breiner blames President Donald Trump for fueling his supporters to act inappropriately. "Trump created this environment and people like my client, Mr. Ochs, is paying the price."
