Ridgefield man found guilty for his role in January 6th riot at U.S. Capitol

A Ridgefield man has been found guilty on multiple charges for his role in the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol. Patrick McCaughey III was caught on camera in the violent assault of a police officer.  The video was presented as evidence during the bench trial, showing him pinning Metropolitan Police Officer Daniel Hodges with a riot shield as a crowd pushes its way into the Capitol. McCaughey can be heard yelling at the officers to yield to the rioters.  He was found guilty on nine counts, including felony obstruction of an official proceeding. The judge said McCaughey’s testimony that he simply wanted to get inside to protest was unbelievable, and noted he’d made repeated references to legislators and told police, “Our issue is not with you."  His sentencing will take place on January 26th.
