A Helmetta man from New Jersey has turned himself into the police after a three-day manhunt. Gregory Yetman, 47, appeared in federal court on Monday to face the charges against him. He was wanted for his involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The FBI had been searching for Yetman for two days before he finally surrendered. He was served an arrest warrant on Wednesday, and he evaded capture until Friday. Yetman is accused of assaulting, resisting, and impeding certain officers, as well as entering and remaining in a restricted building. He also committed acts of physical violence on the Capitol grounds.
The FBI released images of Yetman using pepper spray against police officers during the attack. This evidence further supports his charges and the allegations against him.
Yetman is one of the 28 individuals from New Jersey who have been arrested for their participation in the Jan. 6 attack. This demonstrates the significant impact of the events that unfolded on that day.
To gain further insights into Yetman’s case, News 12’s Lauren Due interviewed criminal defense attorney Harley Breite. While Breite does not represent Yetman, he has previously worked with other defendants from the Jan. 6 incident. His expertise provides valuable context and understanding of the legal aspects surrounding the case.
