Packer was arrested Wednesday Jan. 13, 2021 on federal charges related to the riot at the U.S. Capitol. The sweatshirt also bore a skull and cross bones and the words "Work Brings Freedom" - echoing the slogan in German over the gates at Auschwitz.

"After arriving in Washington, D.C., the defendant sent a text that stated, 'I may wander over to the Mayor's office and put a 5.56 in her skull, FKG [expletive]", prosecutors wrote in a court filing seeking Meredith's detention pending trial.

"One of the conditions of his release includes barring Packer from visiting Washington unless it's for a court appearance", according to the AP article.

A federal judge said Packer would be released promptly on a personal recognizance bond.

Packer told the judge he would like to seek his own attorney.
