White is the second Minnesotan to be arrested in connection to the events of Jan. 6.

Jordan Kenneth Stotts, 31, appeared in U.S. District Court in Bemidji on March 19. He is charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, as well as violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. A judge set his bond at $25,000. He has been released on the condition that he promises to appear at his next court date.
