Former D.C. police officer Michael Fanone was harassed by protesters on Thursday night after he attended a hearing by the House committee investigating the Capitol riot.
A video posted on social media by ABC News reporter Will Steakin shows a group following Fanone as he left the hearing.
“Why were you there on January 6 when you were not even on duty?” one woman asked as he walked away.
“Are you a real police officer?” she asked while continuing to follow him.
A man with a banner of Donald Trump that said “coup coup” was seen pushing the protesters away from Fanone, which caused one of the protesters to fall over and yell.
Fanone was dragged from the line of police officers defending the Capitol on Jan. 6 into the crowd of Trump supporters storming the building where he was beaten, tased and suffered a heart attack.
Fanone has since retired from the D.C. police force and become an on-air contributor for CNN.
Earlier on Thursday, Fanone spoke at the sentencing hearing for Denney, who is the founder of the far-right militia group, “Patriot Boys of North Texas.”
“I don’t care how much time Mr. Denney is sentenced to,” Fanone told the federal judge in court, according to the Washington Post. “I’m only interested in what Mr. Denney does with those days, and I hope from the bottom of my heart that he suffers.”
