According to an affidavit filed in court, prosecutors say Brock was first identified by his ex-wife, who had called the Federal Bureau of Investigation national Threat Operations Center to report she saw photos of him inside the Capitol building, and she recognized a patch he was wearing.
They joked that among the four of them they would more or less head up the nation's defense, according to the archived story.
Prerak Shah, the acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas, praised Brock's arrest over Twitter. Authorities said Brock entered the Capitol wearing a green helmet, tactical test, and "a white flex cuff, which is used by law enforcement to restrain and/or detain subjects". He was an A-10 pilot.
Photos depicting his presence show a person who appears to be Munchel carrying plastic restraints, an item in a holster on his right hip, and a cell phone mounted on his chest with the camera facing outward, ostensibly to record events that day.
Munchel is being held at the Davidson County Sheriff's Office in Nashville, Tennessee.

The men, who were identified by researchers at the University of Toronto, were seen inside the building with the restraints, authorities said.
"The joke was that I was going to be president" while his friends would be chairman of the joint chefs of staff, chief of staff of the Air Force, and chairman of the board of General Dynamics, Brock said in the 1989 interview.
Munchel and his 57-year-old mother, Lisa Marie Eisenhart, identified themselves in an interview with The Sunday Times as they were leaving Washington.
Brock was photographed carrying the flex handcuffs, which he told The New Yorker he had found on the ground and did not intend to use. Five people are now dead, including a woman who was shot by police as she and a crowd of other people tried to force their way toward the House chambers where lawmakers where sheltering, as well as a police officer who was beaten by members of the mob. Angeli was arrested in Arizona and faces the same charges as Brock and Munchel.
