Bradley Rukstales, CEO of tech company Cogensia, was arrested Wednesday following riots at the Capitol and is now apologizing for his actions.
Rukstales apologized for his actions in a Thursday interview with CBS 2 Chicago.
The tech CEO was one of many demonstrators who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday in what has been called a historic attack on democracy.
The siege left five people dead, including one Capitol police officer.
He continued: “My decision to enter the Capitol was wrong, and I am deeply regretful to have done so. Without qualification and as a peaceful and law-abiding citizen, I condemn the violence and destruction that took place in Washington. I offer my sincere apologies for my indiscretion, and I deeply regret that my actions have brought embarrassment to my family, colleagues, friends and fellow countrymen.”
