MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A Vietnam veteran charged with bringing 11 Molotov cocktails and other weapons to Washington on the day of the U.S. Capitol riot has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The agreement for Lonnie Coffman of Falkville, Alabama, is cited in a Wednesday court filing.

The filing does not provide details.

Coffman was charged with multiple firearms charges.

He is one of hundreds of people arrested after rioters supporting then-President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and disrupted the certification of President Joe Biden’s election win.
