He has been charged by the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia with obstruction of Congress and misdemeanor charges of unlawfully entering a restricted building or grounds.
He most recently starred as Judas in a major touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
He performs under the stage name James T. Justis.
Meanwhile, according to court documents cited by the US Attorney’s Office, James D. Beeks and other members and “affiliates” of the Oath Keepers “marched in ‘stack’ formation into the Capitol grounds and then up the east steps of the Capitol to the area outside of the Rotunda doors.”
Once inside the Capitol, the group split up.
Half of them, including Beeks, tried to push their way through a line of law enforcement officers guarding a hallway that led to the Senate chamber.
Law enforcement forcibly repelled their advance.
Beeks and others with him regrouped in the Rotunda and then left the building at approximately 3:04 p.m.”
