1/12/2021 UPDATE: Colt surrendered today at a jail near his Idaho residence. With federal charges looming, Colt is locked up on a United States Marshals Service hold.

“I’m all over the news now,” said Josiah Colt as he recorded a selfie video after exiting the Capitol, where, he breathlessly reported, he “hopped down into” the Senate chamber and plopped into what he thought was the seat of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom the rioter referred to as a “treasonous bitch.”

Colt, a 34-year-old Idaho resident, was first photographed dropping into the Senate chamber from the visitors gallery. He then sat in Vice President Mike Pence’s chair and raised his right fist in triumph.

The twice-divorced Colt, who will surely soon be arrested by federal agents, is identified by Washington, D.C. cops as a person of interest in connection with yesterday's “unlawful entry” into the Capitol building.

Colt is pictured at right in a 2012 mug shot taken by the Ada County Sheriff’s Office following Colt’s conviction for resisting or obstructing police. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail and placed on unsupervised probation for one year, according to court records.

Colt’s next booking photo session will likely be handled by the FBI or the United States Marshals Service.

Colt last year incorporated Funnel Craft LLC, a digital marketing firm for which he is the chief executive. The firm’s web site--which appears to have gone offline post-insurrection--boasts of being staffed by “marketing geniuses” who have produced in excess of $10 million in revenue for its clients. The firm’s address is listed as Colt’s apartment in Meridian, a city outside Boise.
