Athens man died, Falkville man arrested during disturbance at US Capitol

An Athens man died of an apparent heart attack and a Falkville man was arrested during the protests at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, according to police.

The Athens man was identified as Kevin Greeson, 55, by Robert Contee III, acting chief of the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department. The arrested Falkville man was identified as Lonnie Coffman.

Greeson’s wife, Kristi Greeson, said her husband was an advocate of President Donald Trump and attended the event to show his support, not to be involved in violence.

“Kevin had a history of high blood pressure, and in the midst of the excitement, suffered a heart attack. Our family is devastated,” the family said in a statement.

“Kevin was a wonderful father and husband who loved life. He loved to ride motorcycles, he loved his job and his co-workers, and he loved his dogs. … He was excited to be there to experience this event — he was not there to participate in violence or rioting, nor did he condone such actions.”

The other two people who died from medical emergencies during the protests were identified by D.C. police as Benjamin Phillips, 50, of Ringtown, Pennsylvania, and Rosanne Boyland, 34, of Kennesaw, Georgia.

Coffman was one of 14 people Capitol Police arrested Wednesday, according to a police statement. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license, which is a felony in D.C., as well as possession of an unregistered firearm and possession of unregistered ammunition.

The D.C. Department of Corrections on Thursday said Coffman was being held in the D.C. Central Cellblock.
