Cowboys for Trump leader Couy Griffin is currently in solitary confinement after he was arrested for his role in the siege of the U.S Capitol.
He claims that he did not go into the Capitol and was involved in no violence.
A federal judge is saying that the reason he is in solitary confinement is that he has refused to take a COVID test.
The jailed leader of Cowboys for Trump has been held in solitary isolation for two weeks as he refuses to take a coronavirus test and has rejected initial offers to speak with an attorney or judge following his arrest in connection with the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol, according to court records.
Couy Griffin, an Otero County commissioner from southern New Mexico and founder of a horseback-riding group of Donald Trump promoters, has been charged by federal prosecutors with knowingly entering the Capitol grounds with the intent to disrupt government business.
He was arrested later on Jan. 17 as he returned to Washington, vowing opposition to President Joe Biden’s election victory and inauguration.
