FBI: Retired FDNY Firefighter Turned Himself on U.S. Capitol Riot Charges

The former FDNY Firefighter, who stormed the U.S. Capitol on June 6th, has turned himself into authorities Tuesday.

FBI New York ADIC Sweeney said in a statement following Thomas Fee’s arrest, “Thomas Fee is alleged to have illegally made his way into our Nation’s house. Today, we invited him into ours.”

The recently-retired FDNY firefighter, Thomas Fee, was charged on Monday for his alleged role in storming the U.S. Capitol building, after bragging to a government employee that he was the “tip of the spear,” according to federal authorities.

Thomas Fee Selfies Taken Inside of The U.S. Capitol

Thomas Fee, 53, of Freeport, Long Island, texted an acquaintance a photo of himself surrounded by rioters inside the US Capitol Rotunda, according to court papers.

In 2004, Fee was suspended as a volunteer firefighter in Hempstead, Long Island, over allegations he repeatedly shouted racial slurs at a black doctor.

The incidents allegedly took place as the cardiologist walked past the firehouse on Long Beach Road.

Fee retired in October after 22 years with the FDNY, the department said.
