A Trump supporter who stormed the Capitol last Wednesday armed with 11 Molotov cocktails and an assault rifle has been arrested, authorities said Friday.

Lonnie Coffman, 70, of Falkville, Ala., had the “ready to go” explosives in his pickup truck, along with an M4 carbine assault rifle and two handguns, Justice Department officials said.
