Prosecutors: Man arrested for storming Capitol in Westchester tried to flee country
A man wanted for storming the Capitol was arrested in Westchester before trying to flee the country.
Prosecutors say Jeffrey Sabol allegedly dragged an officer down the steps of the Capitol.
Authorities arrested him outside Westchester Medical Center early Friday.
They say Sabol told News 12 he was in “a fit of rage.”
White Plains Judge Andrew Krause called the allegations “very disturbing, deeply troubling and “conduct beyond the pale.” Sabol’s lawyer argued everything is not 100% clear and that Sabol should get bail, but the judge denied that and called Sabol a “danger to the community.”
Police say Sabol grew up in New York, but has lived in Colorado for 20 years.
He did not enter a plea on Friday.
