During a detention hearing Monday, assistant U.S. Attorney Hank Moon called 29-year-old Michael Foy “one of the most violent of the capitol rioters.”

Moon showed video and still photos purporting to show Foy allegedly striking a Capitol police officer ten times with a hockey stick during the riot.
