Iced Earth guitarist and founder Jon Schaffer has been arrested for his role in the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month. According to a WISH report, the Columbus, Indiana musician turned himself into authorities around 3pm today (January 17). Schaffer apparently faces six charges, including "engaging in an act of physical violence in a Capitol building." After being photographed at the Capitol during the insurrection, Schaffer's photo appeared on lists released by both regional and federal authorities as someone they were looking for.
