New lawyer named for East Naples man arrested in US Capitol riot

The East Naples man suspected of participating in the U.S. Capitol riot in January is now  being represented by a Tampa attorney, replacing the high-profile lawyer who had taken over the case in March.

Christopher Worrell, 50, was arrested after FBI agents executed a search and arrest warrant at his home on March 12. 

The prosecution claims Worrell assaulted a line of law enforcement officers with pepper spray gel outside the U.S. Capitol building during the riot in Washington D.C. on Jan. 6.  

On Friday, a joint stipulation for substitution of counsel motion before Judge Royce C. Lamberth in U.S. District court in Washington D.C., was filed listing Attorney Alex Reed Stavrou , Sr., of Tampa as Worrell’s new lawyer, replacing Attorney John Pierce.
