Popular Michael jackson the imitator was accused of his role in the Riot at the United States Capitol to January 6.
Broadway actor James Delisco Beeks was charged on Tuesday with a breach in the Capitol as part of the far-right militia Oath keepers. While he did not arrive at “Stop the flight” earlier in the day with the group, investigators discovered that he had paid membership dues to the organization last December and ended up joining the group once at the Capitol.
Beeks was seen in a video wearing a homemade bulletproof shield while wearing a black helmet and an iconic Michael Jackson jacket from his 1987 Bad tour. He recently played the role of Judas in the touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” The show confirmed that the artist had been suspended “indefinitely”.
Despite his successful career, which included appearances on Broadway in “Kinky boots“, “Aida”, and “Ragtime,” the 49 years still found time to storm the Capitol, which left one dead.
“Beeks was among a crowd of people, including some who attacked law enforcement,” said the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia said in a statement.
Beeks was accused of felony of obstructing Congress and unlawfully entering a building or restricted land, a misdemeanor. He was released after his court appearance on Tuesday.
