Michael Joseph Foy affidavit by WXYZ-TV Channel 7 Detroit

Most vicious of all, ‘HockeyStickMan’ led assault on Officer Sicknick that ended in his death..

“Foy begins striking a group of Metropolitan Police Officer assisting in the protection of the U.S. Capitol who had been knocked down and dragged into the crowd of rioters,” authorities said in an affidavit. “This attack continues for approximately 16 seconds until Foy is knocked down by another rioter. At that time, Foy circles back through the crowd, lowers his hood, which reveals a clear image of his face.”

On January 17, 2021, the FBI also identified a YouTube video entitled, “I can’t breathe (on the steps)/The Storm Arrived Pt 9,” posted by user name The Black Conservative Preacher. This video shows another angle of the attack on law enforcement at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. Specifically, at time stamp 1:00 in the video, FOY begins striking a group of Metropolitan Police Officer (“MPD”) assisting in the protection of the U.S. Capitol who had been knocked down and dragged into the crowd of rioters. This attack continues for approximately 16 seconds until FOY is knocked down by another rioter. At that time, FOY circles back through the crowd, lowers his hood, which reveals a clear image of his face. At time stamp 1:26, FOY raises his hockey stick above his head in celebration and beings shouting (the words are indistinguishable from the other crowd noise). At 3:45, Foy begins motioning and shouting, as if to another individual in the crowd, and appears to be saying “Let’s Go,” while pointing at the U.S. Capitol building. At 3:59, FOY is seen crawling through a broken window into the U.S. Capitol.

Agents were led to Foy thanks to pictures of the suspect posted on Facebook by his father, Joseph Foy, the FBI said.

The father posted one picture of Foy, carrying a “Trump 2020” flag – affixed to a hockey stick – in front of the Washington Monument on Jan. 6, according to the affidavit. In another image, the suspect was draped in an American flag.(NBC News)

Detroit News: The Federal Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Wixom man who the agency contends entered the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and allegedly assaulted individuals with a hockey stick.

Michael Joseph Foy was arrested and appeared Thursday before Eastern District of Michigan U.S. District Magistrate Judge David Grand via Zoom from an unidentified Detroit courtroom.

Wearing a gray Adidas hoodie and blue surgical mask, Foy gave short answers to all of Grand’s questions.

He will appear in court Monday for a detention hearing, where federal prosecutors are expected to also produce body camera footage of the alleged assault and ask for Foy’s continued detention.

Foy is charged with having entered and remained on restricted grounds with the intent to impede with authority; obstruction of law enforcement; assaulting, resisting, opposing, impeding, intimidating or interfering with an officer; and aiding and abetting.

He also is charged with obstructing, impeding or influencing any official proceeding of Congress.

In the FBI’s Tuesday filing, signed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Robin Meriweather, an FBI special agent referred to several photos and videos allegedly showing Foy carrying a hockey stick at the U.S. Capitol and at times swinging it at individuals, including one person lying on the ground and a law enforcement official.
