Englewood man gets 5 years in prison for Jan. 6 Capitol breach

An Englewood man was sentenced for assaulting law enforcement officers during the Jan. 6 Capitol breach. The defendant assaulted police and led a breach of line that collapsed the police perimeter.
A Englewood man was sentenced Wednesday on felony charges related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

Daniel Lyons Scott, 29, was sentenced to 60 months in prison, 36 months of supervised release, and ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution to the Architect of the Capitol by U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth. Scott's actions and the actions of others disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress convened to ascertain and count the electoral votes related to the 2020 presidential election.


According to court documents, Scott, a member of the Proud Boys organization who goes by the nickname “Milkshake,” and co-defendant Christopher Worrell of Naples, were involved in discussions leading up to January 6 on the encrypted messaging application Telegram about ways to block the Congressional certification of the Electoral College vote.

On Jan. 3, 2021, Scott and other members of the Proud Boys organization attended a rally to protest the 2020 election in Naples, Florida. During the rally, Scott yelled to the crowd that if a Florida U.S. Senator did not vote against the certification of the Electoral College vote, they should “give him the rope!”

( 5 years is not shabby...bye bye. )
