The man nicknamed the “QAnon Shaman” after showing up to the riot in the U.S. Capitol bare-chested and wearing furs had his first hearing in federal court on Monday. During the hearing, Jake Angeli’s public defender told the court he hasn’t eaten since his arrest Friday. Angeli’s mom then offered a curious explanation for his fast, telling reporters outside the courthouse that her son requires an all-organic diet in prison. “He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food,” she said, according to the Arizona Republic. “He needs to eat.”
Judge Deborah Fine ordered the U.S. Marshal’s Office and Angeli’s public defender to figure out how to address his dietary issues. Late Monday, David Gonzales, the U.S. marshal for the District of Arizona, told local channel ABC15 that his office would “abide by the judge’s order” and that the shaman would get his organic food.
Angeli, 33, is a Navy veteran. He is currently facing charges of disorderly conduct, violent entry, and being on restricted spaces within the Capitol grounds, according to the Republic.
