An actor and comedian known for his role on the cult HBO comedy “Mr. Show,” as well as roles on “Better Call Saul,” “Arrested Development” and “Bob’s Burgers,” has been arrested and charged with felony civil disorder for taking part in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Jay Johnston, who also had small roles in the movies “Anchorman” and “Men in Black II,” is also accused of disorderly conduct, trespassing and blocking passage through the Capitol area. Prosecutors say he took part in a mass push against police in a tunnel on the west side of the Capitol, where some of the worst violence of the riot occurred.
