Alpharetta man arrested, charged in U.S. Capitol breach

By Alyson Shields Reporter

An Alpharetta man was arrested Wednesday in connection to crimes at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. 

Kevin Douglas Creek, 46, faces charges of assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers; physical violence on Capitol grounds; and obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder, among other charges, according to a press release from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Creek made his first court appearances in the Northern District of Georgia Wednesday, the FBI said.

Creek was captured on body camera footage assaulting multiple law enforcement officers shortly before 2:30 p.m. on January 6, according to court documents. The documents said he stuck an officer and kicked another officer while they were uniformed and carrying out official duties. Creek allegedly was carrying mace and a boot knife.

According to the documents, Creek traveled to Washington, D.C. on January 5 and traveled home on January 7.

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section. Valuable assistance was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia.

Creek is the 11th person from Georgia to be arrested in connection to insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. The FBI reports 465 people have been arrested in connection to the breach in the 150 days since.

The investigation continues.
