Texas man arrested after making threat to riot again

A Texas man has been arrested after making threats online regarding a second riot at the U.S. Capitol.

According to a statement by The United States District Attorney’s Office, Troy Anthony Smocks, 58, of Dallas, is charged by criminal complaint with “knowingly and willfully transmitting threats in interstate commerce, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 875(c).”

Smocks made an initial court appearance Friday in the U. S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, according to the office.

According to an affidavit, Smocks is alleged to have traveled to the Washington, D.C., area on Jan. 5, 2021, a day before the illegal rioting.
