ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — State Police at SP Capital arrested Dominic M. Wierzbicki, 41, of Albany in connection to the stabbing at East Capitol Park in Albany that took place the same day as the Capitol riot in Washington, D.C.
Police say they charged Wierzbicki after investigating the fight that took place on January 6 during a pro-Trump rally. They say Wierzbicki struck a counter-protester on the neck with a taser. Police successfully identified Wierzbicki through eyewitness accounts and video footage from the day.
Both charges—third-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon—are class A misdemeanors, each worth under a year with a conviction, according to state sentencing guidelines. Police say Wierzbicki turned himself in.
