ORLANDO, Fla. — A father and son, both with law enforcement backgrounds, were arrested and charged Thursday with taking part in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Officer Kevin Tuck, who resigned from the Windermere Police Department, and Nathaniel Tuck, who was an officer with the Apopka Police Department, both walked out of the federal courthouse in Orlando Thursday afternoon.
The Windermere Police Department released a statement Thursday saying, “we are disheartened by the arrest of Officer Kevin Tuck today by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for charges stemming out of January 6, 2021 at the US Capitol Building.”
The Tucks did not say much after walking out from their hearing.
Windemere Police Chief David Ogden said a fellow officer brought his concerns about Kevin Tuck to his immediate supervisor about his role in the violence at the capitol.
The FBI was contacted and was told they would offer transparency and full cooperation into the matter.
According to court documents, Kevin Tuck is facing charges including obstruction of an official proceeding and disorderly conduct in a capitol building.
According to police, Kevin Tuck denied being inside the Capitol and stated he attended a political rally.
Police said Kevin Tuck did not notify his supervisor he would be attending the event.
His son, Nathaniel Tuck, is also facing similar charges.
Prosecutors said Nathaniel Tuck forced his way into the Capitol.
