The U.S. Marshal’s Office said it will be complying with the strict organic diet of the Capitol attack suspect known as the “QAnon Shaman” following reports he has not eaten since he was placed in custody.
The strict organic diet of the so-called “QAnon Shaman” will be met following reports he has not eaten since he was placed in custody.
Jake Angeli, 33, of Arizona, real name Jacob Anthony Chansley, made his first court appearance on Monday after he was arrested on suspicion of being part of the mob which stormed the building on Wednesday, January 6.
During his first appearance at a federal courtroom in Phoenix, Angeli’s public defender Gerald Williams told the judge that he had not eaten since he was taken into custody because he is on an extremely restrictive diet consisting solely of organic food, believed to be for religious reasons.
Judge Deborah Fine said the claims were “deeply concerning” and ordered Williams to find a way to accommodate the 33-year-old’s demands.
“We will abide by the judge’s order,” David Gonzales, U.S. Marshal for the District of Arizona, later confirmed to ABC 15 Monday, adding Angeli will be provided food to meet his organic diet.
