Videos show Marquez driving his white Tesla from Coral Springs to Washington, D.C., and pointing out signs supporting President Donald Trump.

Other videos show him in the crowd at the Washington Monument and then on the west side of the Capitol.

A video taken later shows him inside a conference room, according to the complaint.

FBI determined Marquez was in a private office of Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley.

On Tuesday, Marquez was released on a $100,000 bond, according to a report in the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Across the nation, others arrested in taking part in the riot face charges ranging from curfew violations to federal theft and weapons felonies, according to federal complaints.
