Ryan Samsel Wiki – Ryan Samsel Biography

Ryan Samsel was charged in February with several crimes, including assaulting a federal officer, obstructing law enforcement, and obstructing a legal proceeding, after he was captured in videos and photos knocking over several officers as he attempted to storm the Capitol. Among the officers he assaulted was a female cop, who fell and hit her head on “the stairs behind her, resulting in a loss of consciousness,” according to a criminal complaint.

A Tuesday filing opposing his latest request to be released from jail pending trial alleges that the Capitol riot was hardly Samsel’s first instance of violence. Prosecutors say that since 2006 there’s been “a pattern of Samsel choking and beating women to the point of loss of consciousness, of many hospital visits for many victims, of chipped and missing teeth, and of Samsel even breaking into one victim’s home multiple times to assault her.”

Charges – Arrested

The Department of Justice filed a scathing document today on a Pennsylvania man, chronicling an extensive history of physical violence against women, hoping to keep him in federal detention for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection, which included an attack on a female police officer.

Ryan Samsel, of Bucks County, has a history of “choking and beating women to the point of loss of consciousness, of many hospital visits for many victims, of chipped and missing teeth and of Samsel even breaking into one victim’s home multiple times to assault her,” according to the federal government’s filing to keep Samsel in detention.

All of this is detailed in a 15-page document that seeks to keep him in prison. “Samsel’s release would pose a danger to the community,” according to the federal filing.

The debate over his detention intensified two months ago, when Samsel alleged that he was beaten at the Washington D.C. Central Detention Center. His attorney, Steven Metcalf, said his client was beaten to a “bloody pulp,” and that they would pursue a civil suit. The Department of Justice is investigating the claim.

Today’s federal filing acknowledged Samsel’s injuries, but they don’t outweigh the current charges against him “and the need to protect the public.”

In 2006, he was convicted of multiple charges for running a woman’s car off the road then threatening to kill her because she owed him $60. In 2009, he held a woman against her will for five hours, choking her until she was unconscious; a conviction followed. Two years later, he was convicted of choking and beating his pregnant girlfriend. A simple assault conviction followed in 2015, again on a woman, the Department of Justice recounted.

In 2019, a woman alleged that he broke into her house, raped and assaulted her; he faces an outstanding warrant in New Jersey for those allegations, according to the court filing.

For the Jan. 6 insurrection, he is charged with assaulting a police officer and other crimes. He allegedly pushed over barricades onto U.S. Capitol police officers, knocking one of them – a woman – to the ground. She hit her head on the stairs behind her and was later taken to the hospital and found to have a concussion, the documents state. He is also alleged to have pulled a riot shield from another officer, according to the FBI.

Samsel was among the first people to arrive at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, arriving before then-President Donald Trump had finished his speech, according to the Department of Justice. Most of the protesters went to the Capitol after Trump’s speech.

After the incident, the motion states that Samsel’s pregnant girlfriend changed her story “because she was terrified of him.” Samsel was also convicted of choking another woman to the point of unconsciousness—and hitting her so hard she had a hematoma—in 2015. Another woman came forward to police in 2019 with a similar story, alleging “Samsel raped her multiple times and that she had often been scared he would kill her.”

“There is an outstanding warrant for Samsel’s arrest based on this conduct in New Jersey. Samsel was not only wanted on that warrant at the time of the offense conduct in this case, but he was also still on parole for the 2011 conviction described above,” the motion states.”

Prosecutors note Samsel’s seeming “disregard for the safety of others, the rule of law, and the democratic process” was also evident during his actions during the Jan. 6 siege. In several videos, Samsel is seen walking toward a barricade near the Capitol with another rioter, and immediately becoming confrontational with the officers standing guard.

Samsel “pushed and pulled” on the barricade with his fellow rioters until he fell on the officers. In the process of pushing down the barriers to allow others to storm the Capitol, Samsel knocked over the female officer, the criminal complaint states. When he went to help her up, Samsel told her: “We don’t have to hurt you. Why are you standing in our way?”

Hours later, as the female officer was arresting another rioter, she “blacked out and collapsed in the booking area and had to be transported to the Emergency Room at a local hospital, where she was assessed to have suffered a concussion,” the complaint states.
