    WYLIE, Texas - A Wylie man in custody for taking part in the Capitol riot threatened to shoot his children if they reported him, according the arrest warrant affidavit.
    Guy Reffitt, 48, is accused of obstruction of justice and unlawful entry in connection with the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
    Reffitt’s Wylie home was buzzing Saturday as FBI agents searched for evidence. Investigators say his wife, minor daughter and adult son were there at the time and told investigators Reffitt told them in the days following the riot, he needed to "erase everything"
    He told his son if he reported him to police he’d have no option but to "do what he had to do." The son asked if he was threatening him and Reffitt replied, "Don’t put words in my mouth." The son told investigators he understood the statements to be a threat to his life.
    The affidavit goes on to say Reffitt told his daughter if she crossed the line, he’d "put a bullet through (his) daughter’s phone" and threatened both kids saying, "If you turn me in, you’re a traitor and you know what happens to traitors…traitors get shot."
    Reffitt’s wife told investigators she did not believe he would act on his words, but was "disturbed" by his "extreme" statements.
    Reffitt was identified in still photos from the FBI arrest warrant on a staircase of the Capitol building wearing a blue jacket over a tactical-style vest and a helmet with a camera attached. The images came from news media clips.
    Investigators say the father of three appears to flush his eyes with water after being hit with a chemical irritant either by Capitol police or others in the crowd when he was "at or past the police line"
    The feds also said Reffitt is a member of a far-right militia group.
    At his home, FBI agents discovered an AR-15 rifle and a pistol. They say Reffitt admitted to taking the pistol to DC but claims he disassembled it to comply with DC law.
    Reffitt is the fourth person from North Texas arrested for involvement in the capitol riots. The FBI says it has opened more than 275 cases nationwide with many more to come.
    "My folks have a lot of work to do and we are working hard to do it," said Matthew DeSarno, Dallas FBI Special Agent in Charge.
    Reffitt remains in custody in Fannin County.

      Guy Reffitt is the only traitor in this story.

    9. Chirag Patel

      Im 98.6% sure at this point that being a supporter of MAGA is ultimately supporting far right terrorism, never really had anything to do with making this country better in any sense except for promoting social chaos amongst middle/lower class Americans and causing division. That said, causing social disorder wasn't making anyone great again unless this great again time frame was the civil war era.

    10. Luis Perez

      Mental health and physical health. Are both far gone . Kinda feel bad for the guy . 😕

      Trump, Trucks, and Treason. All new America.

    16. Xavi Palacious

      Arrest them all, they should be in jail broke the law the constitution they should pay for it, violent people needs to behind bars. We as people of the USA we don’t need that, we are good people and we always will be

    17. Robert Balluumm

      If his family have any sense they will get as far away from this lunatic as possible. He's a sandwich short of a picnic. When he threatens his own family in support of Trump there is something seriously wrong. Get away before he kills you.

    18. Crioa Cigouave

      These people needs to be in Guantanamo Bay.

    19. Shazoul Schmuck

      Threatening to shoot your own kids? This dude is a piece of sh*t, hope they lock him up until his kids are grown!

    20. Sergio Correa

      What a role model.......

    21. Christopher Amos

      It is entertaining watching these people getting arrested. They are like the person they so faithfully follow, Trump. They believe they can break the law with no consequences.

    22. James Smith

      If you turn me in, you’re a traitor. 🙄 That sounds just like a 7-8 year old.

    23. Ralph Marshall

      threatening your child with death... Now them's some 'family values' don'cha know...

    24. Ralph Marshall

      "President trump is preparing pardons... Send us your story"... 100,000 digital items show up at the FBI building... Needless to say, these trump cultists are not the brightest tool in the shed. After all, they looked at trump and thought "yea, that's my guy"...

    25. Jim McLean

      How does turning in a traitor make you a traitor ?

    26. Eddie Salgado

      Wow family values down the toilet. Where is the tolerance i keep hearing about?

      From Lil Giant There is video of the Capitol Building Police moving obstacles from in front of the stairways to allow crowds to enter the stairway and pass into the Capitol Building. There is also video of other officers opening the building doors from inside and waving the crowds inside. There is video of the Capitol Building Officers taking selfies and photos with the people inside the building. There is video of small crowds of people in the hallways, carefully walking between the ropes attached to stancheons and looking at the paintings on the walls, like the tourists they were. Huckabee stated he had also seen those videos. If I had been at the Capitol and been waved in by the authorities, I would not have known it was a trespassing offense. There are people who were inside the Capitol Building who were NOT GUILTY of any offense. THEY should not be prosecuted. I have yet to hear one mention about them, and I would not know their names, but I do not believe they should be held for trespassing.

      His wife said she was disturbed after hearing what he told his two children? WTF? Are we really at this place where a Mom can't see past her nose to save her own children? What kind of father is this? I see the sign in his yard and I would ask every police officer if they want this type of person backing them? I would say they would not!

    30. Sam Eppink

      These are incredibly stupid disturbed individuals. We need to get these failed attempts at human beings off the streets and into a cell where they can’t endanger others.

    31. Holly Tyson

      Threatening to murder your own children immediately disqualifies you from being a sane individual and a parent.

    32. Ben Jammin

      Morons wasted their lives for a page six , casino, slumlord. Fools

      This fellow sure needs to be kept in jail and then federal prison, for ever.

    39. Que serra

      These maga slef described as " patriots " are in serious need of a redo in their elementary school history class. Idk what they think they ware loamy to but uts nit this democracy. They fight for king george, not George, Washington. How did they devolve to pree-elightemnt thought back in divine right of kings. Which we fought those years to toss out bx abuse of power by the monarchy was truly ubiquitous. Were their family under rocks these centuries?

    40. Tim Sindt

      He won’t last long in the yard. The tough guy will be someone’s bitch

    41. Chris Morris

      Ah yes the average republican

    43. Rico Staxxx

      Trump supporters need to have their firearms confiscated. Use a social media dragnet to find these psychophants

    44. Steven Figueroa

      It’s crazy that Ik them personally and have been to their house plenty of times

    45. Daniel Skomp

      Tragic Trumpian terrorists

    46. Stacey Switch

      Charge them all with treason against the USA...and send em to the electric chair!!

    47. Anonymous Anonymous

      So, what can would-be rebels learn from all this? If your leaders, whether political, military or patriotic, talk you into doing something stupid, they will abandon you when the finger pointing starts.

    48. outdoornoobie

      The wife thinks he won't actually act on it. This is where everything goes freaking wrong and we end up with dead children, cause nobody listens and ignores the fact. Take the kids away from both parents. Terrible!

    49. Gee Whiz

      Well I guess I'm a traitor, cause I turned someone in. :)

    50. Broodje Feta

      The entire world is laughing at Amerika. The fact that there are still people supporting trump after all his failures. Honestly people .. Amerika is so far behind the western countries. No healthcare, no social safety net, terrible education with crippling debt as a result and to top it all off every moron can get a gun meaning mass shootings in the us are more likely to happen each month then in my country (the netherlands) each 5 years... On top off all this, because of trump massive failures nobody is taking Amerika seriously anymore. If you actually want to regain some respect than denounce trump election claims and actually punish the idiot for spreading the lie. Which is what would happen in any other western country aka more civilised countries

    51. skip181sg

      Wow... a FOX Affiliate Channel on KGup with a whole lotta anti-Trump comments...wonders will never cease

    69. John Petersen

      Jesus, look at this guy's house. What the HELL is he so mad about? He lives at the end of a cul-de-sac in a north Dallas suburb, in a big house with a fenced-in yard. Seriously, that looks like a $300k house. What opportunities has this country not given him and his family that he felt so oppressed and marginalized that he needed to riot? Did he not think he'd get caught? Did he honestly think he was being a righteous patriot, beyond the reach of the law? Bunch of privileged crybabies throwing their lives away for a loathsome puddle of a man who wouldn't give them the time of day.

    76. Modern Gamerz Show

      These charges are like slaps on the wrists! I feel bad for the decent citizens but it's no wonder the world doesn't like amercian tourists. The systemic racism runs so deep in America that if those people breaking into the Capitol were any other race, they'd be sentenced to jail or shot and killed at the Capitol. The American law system is a joke.

    99. MSgt Baca

    100. Dinngg0

      This guy belongs in jail. The scary thing is all of the others exactly like him who didn't make it to DC on Jan 6th, they are still running free with their hate.
