A Capitol rioter who turned himself into the FBI is ‘refusing to eat’ in jail unless he is served organic food.
QAnon ‘shaman’ Jake Angeli, 33, has apparently not eaten in four days since he was put in jail because non-organic food ‘makes him sick’.
That’s according to his mom, Martha Chansley, who has said her son insists on only eating organic food, reports the Arizona Republic.
Angeli was taken into federal custody at the weekend in connection with his role Wednesday’s Capitol uprising.
He faces charges of disorderly conduct, violent entry and illegally being on restricted spaces within the Capitol grounds, and appeared in a virtual federal court hearing yesterday.

During the hearing, magistrate judge Deborah Fine told picky eater Angeli’s public defender to resolve the issue with US Marshals.
‘Mr. Chansley needs to eat’, she said as she ordered him to be held in a Phoenix jail, where he’s expected to remain until at least January 15, while awaiting charges in Washington.
After the hearing, Ms Chansley explained that her son insists on only eating organic food.

She said: ‘He gets very sick if he doesn’t eat organic food. He needs to eat.’
If found guilty, Angeli could be locked up for ‘years and years’, the US Marshal for Phoenix, David Gonzalez, told the Arizona Republic.
Angeli became one of the most recognisable participants during the insurrection at the Capitol. He was photographed posing for pictures while shirtless and wearing a horn hat.
In an interview on Thursday, Angeli denied committing any crimes.
