A Texas man who participated in the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 was charged Saturday. He had made death threats against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

Garret Miller, 36, from the Dallas suburb of Richardson, was arrested Wednesday after weeks of using social media platforms to reply to various political figures with bellicose statements and discussing his actions in the attack. According to court documents, Miller threatened the police officer who shot one of the rioters.

On Jan. 6, Ocasio-Cortez shared a tweet that read, “Impeach.” 

“Assassinate AOC,” Miller replied using his now-suspended Twitter account. 

Miller's charges include “entering or remaining in any restricted buildings or grounds without lawful authority; violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds; obstructing or impeding any official proceeding and certain acts during civil disorder,” according to reports.

A threat charge was added to the charges just a day before he was arrested. This charge alone carries a five-year maximum sentence. 

“We going to get a hold of [the officer] and hug his neck with a nice rope [.],” Miller said about the Capitol Police officer

Ocasio-Cortez responded on Twitter to Miller's arrest. 

Miller’s attorney Clinton Broden has stated that his client “regrets” his actions and has learned from them. 

Miller's detention hearing is set for Monday at the Dallas federal court.
