The Associated Press reported Shroyer’s charges:
The host of a program for the right-wing website Infowars, Owen Shroyer, has been charged in connection to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, according to court documents filed Friday.
Shroyer, who hosts “The War Room With Owen Shroyer” for the website operated by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, said on air Friday that his lawyer informed him there’s a warrant out for his arrest and that he will have to turn himself into authorities Monday morning.
“There’s a lot of questions, some I have answers to, some I don’t. … I plan on declaring innocence of these charges because I am,” Shroyer said in a video posted on the Infowars website.
He faces misdemeanor charges such as disorderly conduct and entering a restricted area of Capitol grounds. No lawyer was listed for him in federal court records.
Authorities say video shows Shroyer marching to the Capitol from the Ellipse shortly before the building was breached, telling the crowd “today we march for the Capitol because on this historic January 6, 2021, we have to let our Congressmen and women know, and we have to let Mike Pence know, they stole the election, we know they stole it, and we aren’t going to accept it!”
The regimes indictment of Owen Shroyer was done in retaliation again him due to the exercise of his freedom of speech. This is Stalin level show trial stuff.

W USA 9 got the scoop too:
A host for the far-right conspiracy website InfoWars was charged in connection with the January 6 Capitol riot this week – with federal prosecutors alleging he broke the terms of a deal to avoid charges from a January 2020 arrest.
Owen Shroyer, an Austin, Texas, resident and host of “The War Room With Owen Shroyer,” was charged with four misdemeanor counts, including entering a restricted grounds and disorderly conduct, according to court documents published Thursday.
In screenshots included in charging documents, the Justice Department says Shroyer can be seen standing next to InfoWars founder Alex Jones and “Stop the Steal” rally organizer Ali Alexander in a restricted area of the Capitol grounds near the inauguration stage. To date, neither Jones nor Alexander have been charged in connection with the riot.
The DOJ said investigators also identified other video showing Shroyer at the top of the stairs on the east side of the Capitol.
Owen Shroyer is a popular talk show host who questions the regime. That’s why he’s being arrested. He’s not actually being arrested for standing on some steps at the Capitol.

Earlier in the year Shroyer made national headlines when he interrupted Trump’s impeachment hearing by loudly declaring “the Democrats are committing treason”.
