ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Court documents filed in federal court say an Alabama man accused of using pepper spray and throwing a metal rod at law enforcement protecting the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection has been arrested in Alaska. The FBI took Christian Manley into custody Friday in Anchorage. During an arraignment Tuesday, a judge set a detention hearing for him for Thursday afternoon.  Manley faces several charges, including assaulting or resisting officers using a dangerous weapon and civil disorder. Court documents did not list an attorney for Manley. It was not immediately clear what ties, if any, Manley has to Alaska.
