According to the indictment, he and other “Proud Boys” leaders used encrypted channels, social media and other electronic communications to plan and carry out a plot to invade the Capitol on January 6, 2021, and interfere with Congress’s ratification of the vote. . from the Electoral College.
The detainee had asked Timothy Kelly to order his release on bail, but the request was denied, and the judge considered the evidence against Tario “too strong.”
Tario was not in Washington when the uprising broke out, he was arrested two days ago and forced to stay outside the nation’s capital, accused of vandalizing the Black Lives Matter flag in a historic black church during a protest in December 2020.
An indictment was brought against five other men associated with the “Proud Boys” besides Tario in March.
