NEW YORK (AP) — A Long Island man who prosecutors say celebrated the storming of the U.S. Capitol by smoking a joint in the rotunda has been arrested. Greg Rubenacker made an initial appearance in federal court in New York on Tuesday to face disorderly conduct and other charges. He’s among scores of protesters arrested after the Jan. 6 riot, including many who chronicled their exploits on social media. He was released on $50,000 bond without entering a plea. A message was left with his attorney seeking comment.
