Federal prosecutors have charged former New York City police officer Thomas Webster for assault with a deadly weapon during the January 6 insurrection. Prosecutors say Webster went after a Capitol Police officer “like a junkyard dog — teeth clenched and fists clenched,” beating him with a metal pole and trying to gouge out his eye. Webster is a former U.S. marine and a 20-year veteran of the NYPD who once helped guard City Hall and the mayor’s mansion.
