A Maryland man was fired from his job after reportedly being recognized wearing a work badge in photographs taken at Wednesday’s storming of the U.S. Capitol

Though the employee’s name and age have yet to be publicly released, Navistar Direct Marketing — a digital and conventional printing company with an office in Frederick — said in a statement Thursday that it had been made aware of the worker’s involvement.

“A Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, during the security breach. After review of the photographic evidence, the employee in question has been terminated for cause,” the company wrote.

“While we support all employees’ right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar,” the company said. 

The man, who was allegedly seen wearing the company’s name badge and a “Make America Great Again” hat, was listed as a person of interest by Washington Metro Police investigating the insurrection. 

The assault on the Capitol led to the deaths of five people, including 42-year-old Capitol Police officer Brian D. Sicknick and 35-year-old U.S. Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt.
