A Mid-Michigan man has pleaded guilty to attacking a police officer during the U.S. Capitol attack on Jan. 6, 2021

Logan Barnhart, 41, of Holt, pleaded guilty to one count of assaulting, resisting or impeding officers using a dangerous weapon. The plea came in court on Wednesday.

He pleaded guilty to assaulting a Metropolitan Police Officer, identified as "B.M." in the filings.

According to the statement of offense, which lays out what happened and Barnhart signed, he grabbed Officer B.M.'s vest and dragged him down the steps in prone position and into the crowd.

While that happened, other rioters, including co-defendants in the case, allegedly beat the officer with weapons including a flagpole and baton.
