Bradley Rukstales, who was arrested on charges of entering illegally on Tuesday after taking part in the mob that stormed the US Capitol in Washington, told a Illinois newspaper that he “deeply regrets” it.
“It was great to see a bunch of people together in the morning and hear the speeches, but, yes, it turned into chaos,” Rukstales said in an interview at his home for CBS2 Chicago.
“I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and I’m sorry for my role in that,” Rukstales said.
He did not immediately respond to several NBC News emails requesting comment on Friday.
The outlet describes the CEO̵
In a tweet yesterday, Cogensia, a Schaumburg-based, Illinois-based company of which Rukstales is CEO, said it had been put on leave because of its admission to the events.
A statement from the US Capitol Police confirmed that Rukstales had been arrested on charges of illegal entry.
According to a search for publicly available data on election donations, Rukstales has donated thousands of dollars to Republicans running for Congress and to President Donald Trump.
