A member of the Proud Boys, Christopher Worrell of Naples, Florida, has gone missing days before his scheduled sentencing for alleged offenses related to the January 6 Capitol siege.
According to Associated Press reports on Friday, Worrell was found guilty of spraying pepper spray gel at police officers from 12 feet away.
Although he never entered the Capitol building himself during the incident, Worrell had been accused of being part of a group that stormed it while Congress was in session to certify the 2020 presidential election results.

The Biden DOJ also wants to fine Worrell for raising money for his lawyer fees.
The DOJ sentencing recommendation for Chris Worrell was 14 years.

He was released from custody pending trial because DOC was grossly negligent in not treating his cancer. The Warden was cited for contempt.

Court documents reveal that the sentencing of Chris Worrell, who had been on house arrest in Florida since his release from jail in Washington in November 2021, was canceled and a warrant for his arrest issued under seal on Tuesday. This development led to speculation that Worrell may have been attempting to flee justice, although other possibilities cannot be ruled out.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the punitive conditions imposed upon Worrell while he was incarcerated under the Biden regime’s supervision.
Jim Hoft revealed two years ago that Worrell suffered from lack of access to water and contracted COVID-19 on top of his non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer.
Despite being at risk of dying from either pandemic or illness, bail was still denied him as authorities withheld his cancer medication for 166 days.
Federal prosecutors are seeking a 14-year prison sentence for Worrell.
There are always two sides to every story.
Here’s an earlier image of Worrell filming police assaults on the crowd. Seems that Worrell realized his phone wasn’t going to stop the unrelenting police attacks and pulled out his self defense spray.

Hoft details precisely how Worell was being railroaded by the Biden regime:
Worrell had travelled to DC with his girlfriend on January 6 to hear then-President Donald Trump speak and exercise their right to freely protest the 2020 presidential election.
Following the Stop the Steal rally, Worrell followed the crowd of thousands of people to Capitol Hill to protest. The situation was peaceful at first, but escalated when people began to push against the police barriers to get into the Capitol building.
In videos he recorded on the scene, Worrell can repeatedly be heard calling for peace. One of the clips from his phone captures him telling an officer that he was “not coming through,” when he accidentally bumped into a barricade trying to back away from the situation.
During the chaos, Worrell saw people that he believed to be Antifa pushing towards the police. He maintains that he discharged his pepper spray towards the people he believed to be leftist agitators, to protect the officers. The government claims that he was trying to spray the police, but have not offered any evidence to back this up. Eventually, they conceded that the government “do[es] not currently know with certainty the target at which Worrell was spraying.”
It is critical to note that Worrell was legally carrying the pepper spray.
Let us hope Worrell is unharmed and eventually receives actual justice in a court of law. This means exoneration.
