A federal judge in Washington has postponed Wednesday's scheduled hearing for an East Liverpool man accused of repeatedly attacking police during the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.

A U.S. District Court judge gave prosecutors until September 20 to present new evidence to the attorney representing Kenneth Joseph Owen Thomas, who faces charges that include assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers; obstruction of law enforcement during civil disorder; and engaging in physical violence on Capitol grounds.

A court filing does not provide details of that evidence, other than to say that the Government continues to provide the defense with evidence from other charged defendants’ devices, social media accounts, and other sources which have not yet been identified or examined

Prosecutors say they want to give Thomas's attorney time to review the evidence as they try to work out a plea bargain in the case or a plan to defend Thomas.

Thomas was arrested in May of last year in Alabama for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol which disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress in the process of counting the electoral votes from the presidential election.

According to court documents, Thomas was recorded on Metropolitan Police Department body-worn camera footage advancing toward a line of law enforcement and pushing against their shields.

The video allegedly shows Thomas punching and striking the officers with his fist and forearm at least twice.

As officers tried to push the crowd of rioters from the steps, investigators say Thomas turned toward rioters and ordered them to “hold the line” against advancing officers, repeating this several times.

Officers say Thomas was one of the first to come in and start hitting and pushing officers on the line.
