'Qanon shaman' pleads guilty for role in Capitol riot, will face 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 years in prison

Chansley was one of the first people to enter the Capitol building on Jan. 6, shirtless with an American flag spear, face paint, and furry horns. 

He was arrested three days after the riot and originally charged with six crimes, but pleaded guilty Friday to one felony count of obstructing an official proceeding.
