  • A man in Florida facing charges over his involvement in the Capitol riot is again in custody. 
  • Paul Rae is accused of driving a boat while intoxicated and crashing into a small island off of Florida.
  • Rae was briefly held on suspicion of boating under the influence.

A man in Florida already facing federal charges for his involvement in the Capitol riot was arrested on one count of boating under the influence Saturday night, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. 

Paul Rae, 38, was held overnight in the Pinellas County jail but was released the next morning, Corporal Travis Sibley of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said. 

Rae was driving a boat in the intercoastal waterway late Saturday when he crashed into a small island and drove 75 feet past the waterline, Sibley said. 

When officers responded to the crash, both Rae and his passenger showed signs of impairment and failed to pass a sobriety test, according to Sibley. Neither of them were injured. 

Rae was charged earlier this year with knowingly entering a restricted building and impeding an official proceeding in connection with the January 6 Capitol Riots, local Fox News affiliate WTVT reported
