MILLERSVILLE, Md. -- The Anne Arundel County Police suspended an officer while it investigated that officer's involvement with last week's Capitol protest that erupted into violence when protestors stormed the Capitol.

The AACP said that is supports the lawful expression of freedom of speech and assembly. The officer is suspended with pay until the department determines if the officer's conduct at the protest violated any laws or AACP policies. 

Fire and police departments from all around the country are investigating the involvement of their officers in the protests.

Five people, including a Capitol Hill Police Officer and a former SOMD resident died in the incident. 

West Virginia Delegate Derrick Evans resigned from his seat after video showed him participating in the storming of the Capitol.

Evans was arrested and charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol Grounds.
