FREDERICK — A Maryland-based marketing company has fired one of their employees after he was photographed protesting at the U.S. Capitol while wearing his work badge.
The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police confirmed that Nicholas Rodean, of MD, was arrested Wednesday with a Federal Warrant and said that there is no additional information available to provide at this time.
In a statement, the company said: “Navistar Direct Marketing was made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, during the security breach. After review of the photographic evidence the employee in question has been terminated for cause.”
“While we support all employee’s right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing,” the statement continued.
Authorities in Washington D.C. and the FBI are asking the public to help identify persons of interest who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
The Metropolitan Police Department currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for a crime committed in D.C.
