A former Yakima County Commissioner candidate has been arrested for breaching the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

A report by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force says 50-year-old Lisa Homer, formerly of Yakima, entered the Capitol Building, and moved extensively throughout the building for about one hour. The report notes at this time, there's no evidence that she destroyed any property or assaulted any law enforcement officer.

The arrest was made in Colorado Springs on Friday.

The report shows over a dozen photos of Homer captured from New York Times video from Jan. 6. In those photos she's seen donning a beanie with the words "Lions not sheep," the same hat she's seen wearing in a social media profile picture.

According to the report, video evidence shows Homer chanting along with Proud Boys. The report says one Proud Boy leader can be seen chanting, "who's house is this?" The crowd responds, "our house!" Then he yells, "do you want your house back?" and Homer can be seen yelling, "yes."

An arrest warrant filed by U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia charges Homer with entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a Capitol building; and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
