NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The mother of a Nashville suspect accused of participating in the U.S. Capitol riots with zip ties has been arrested.
Lisa Eisenhart, 56, was arrested Saturday in Nashville by FBI agents, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Tennessee.
Eisenhart, a Woodstock, Georgia resident, faces charges for conspiring with her son, Eric Munchel to violate federal statutes.
Munchel has been referred to as the "zip-tie guy" after a Getty Images photograph showed him inside the Senate gallery with a holstered weapon and zip-tie handcuffs in his left hand. He was arrested last weekend.
