Charges: Ex-firefighter threw extinguisher at Capitol Police

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A retired Pennsylvania firefighter has been arrested on suspicion of throwing a fire extinguisher that hit three police officers during the siege at the U.S. Capitol. Former Chester firefighter Robert Sanford was arrested Thursday on charges including assault of a police officer and unlawfully entering the Capitol. The charges against Sanford are not related to the widely publicized attack on an officer who was hit with a fire extinguisher and died. Sanford is due in federal court in Philadelphia, but the case will be prosecuted in Washington. Sanford couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday, and it wasn’t clear whether he had an attorney.
