The leader of the Proud Boys group has been arrested in Washington DC on suspicion of burning a Black Lives Matter flag last month.
Enrique Tarrio faces misdemeanor destruction of property charges, police say.
He has reportedly admitted torching a banner taken from a black church during a rally in December in the city.
President Donald Trump has been urging supporters to gather in the capital this week for another demonstration.
On Wednesday, members of Congress are due to certify Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory before he takes office on 20 January.
Mr. Tarrio has said on the social media app Parler that the Proud Boys will “turn out in record numbers on Jan 6th”, referring to his members as “the most notorious group of extraordinary gentlemen”.
Mr. Tarrio – who lives in Miami, where he also reportedly runs a grassroots organization called Latinos for Trump – told the Washington Post at the time that he had burned the Black Lives Matter flag.
But he maintained he did not know the Asbury United Methodist Church, where the flag had reportedly flown, was predominantly attended by African American worshippers.
Mr. Tarrio also said Proud Boy members have had their flags and hats stolen in past demonstrations without anyone being arrested for those alleged incidents.
Earlier on Monday, another black church that was vandalized during December’s protest sued Mr. Tarrio and the Proud Boys.
There is a scheduled Trump flag Burning on the calendar of events at the Pennsylvania Office of general services ..somebody better gets arrested!
