Two-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Klete Keller has been hit with a seven-count indictment for storming the US Capitol last month, court papers reveal.
He now faces one count each of obstruction, remaining in a restricted building, civil disorder, disorderly and disruptive conduct, disorderly conduct in a Capitol Building and impeding the passage through the Capitol grounds, the indictment says.
The 6-foot-6 teammate of Michael Phelps was identified by at least a dozen members of the swimming community in a video clip of the uprising that left five dead, according to aquatic sports site SwimSwam.
Keller was spotted in the Capitol Rotunda wearing a distinctive Team USA jacket and screenshots of the incriminating footage were included in the complaint.
After Keller’s arrest, he resigned from his job as a real estate broker, SwimSwam reported.
The star athlete competed in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics, taking home a total of five medals.
