WEHT has reached out to Lori Vinson for comment, but have not heard back so far.
OWENSBORO, Ky (WEHT) – Lori Vinson and her husband Thomas Vinson have been arrested on federal charges in Owensboro Tuesday on charges in connection with the Capitol Breach, according to the FBI Louisville office.
WEHT talked to Lori last month about her trip. She told them she was fired from her job at Ascension St. Vincent in Evansville for going to D.C.
Their charges include: knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct which impedes the conduct of government business, disruptive conduct in the Capitol buildings, demonstrating or picketing in the Capitol buildings. The FBI has a list of people who have been arrested in connection with the Capitol riots.
When WEHT talked to her last month, Vinson said she didn’t act violently, nor did she see anything too violent. She also said the FBI talked with her and told her she wouldn’t be hearing from them again.
WEHT reached out to Ascension St. Vincent in January for comment but was told comments cannot be made on specific employee matters. Vinson said she has made an appeal to the hospital to reconsider her termination and is waiting to hear back.
Both Vinsons are in federal custody and are expected to have their initial court appearances on Tuesday afternoon.
