Logan Barnhart was arrested Tuesday in Lansing and is the 12th person from Michigan who was arrested.

The 40-year-old was charged with assaulting officers using a dangerous weapon, civil disorder, engaging in physical violence in a restricted building, entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly conduct in a restricted building and act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds.

A superseding indictment was unsealed in federal court on Tuesday after a grand jury charged Barnhart and others earlier this month.

The FBI released photos of Barnhart wearing a Caterpillar sweatshirt during the riots, and he was reportedly a target of the online group "Sedition Hunters" which aim to identify those who took part in the Capitol riots. He was known as "#CatSweat" by some of those in the group.
