A Bumble user who boasted to a match on the dating app about participating in the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol has been arrested and charged over his alleged role in the insurrection. According to court documents, Robert Chapman of Carmel, N.Y., was charged Thursday with knowingly entering or remaining on restricted government property without lawful authority, as well as violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. The documents state his arrest came after a person he matched with on Bumble gave a screenshot of the conversation to law enforcement. "I did storm the Capitol," Chapman wrote, adding that he had spoken to reporters at the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. "I made it all the way into Statuary Hall!" "We are not a match," his potential suitor wrote in response.
