Boise man who went viral after storming U.S. Capitol voluntarily surrenders

A Boise man, whose images went viral last week, of him storming into the U.S. Capitol, has turned himself in to local authorities.

KBOI-TV can exclusively confirm that Josiah Colt voluntarily surrendered at the Ada County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday afternoon at about 4 p.m.

It’s unclear exactly what charges Colt is facing, however, the FBI on Saturday did post a photo of Colt hanging in the chamber asking for the public’s help “identifying those who made unlawful entry.”

Colt did not talk with CBS2 as he went inside the Ada County Jail nor did his representative.

However, the day after the incident, the Colt told CBS2 that he got caught up in the moment and when he saw the door to the Chamber open, he walked in, hopped down, and sat on the chair.
