(AP) — Federal officials say a West Texas flower shop owner who posted a video on Facebook bragging about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office being broken into during the U.S. Capitol riot last week has been arrested.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in San Antonio says the FBI arrested Jenny Cudd and another Midland resident, Eliel Rosa, on Wednesday. They appeared in court Wednesday and each is charged with entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

Cudd has told The Associated Press she didn’t personally go into Pelosi’s office and that she didn’t do anything violent or destroy any property.
