Ashland Doctor Jacquelyn Starer Arrested For Attacking Capitol on Jan. 6

Here you will read details about Jacquelyn Starer arrested for attacking Capitol. According to recently revealed court documents, an Ashland physician was detained on Tuesday and charged in connection with the attack on the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. According to the criminal complaint, 68-year-old Jacquelyn Starer was seen on body camera footage hitting a police officer.

A doctor in Massachusetts, Starer “is a practicing physician licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts,” the FBI agent who filed the complaint said. According to WBZ-TV, she used to work at the Faulkner Hospital in Jamaica Plain, but she is no longer affiliated with the facility.

The lawsuit states that Starer wore red attire, including a hat with “TRUMP” and the number 45 on it, while attending the “Stop The Steal” event and while inside the Capitol.

Starer was reportedly “affected by the chemical irritant that was deployed during the incident,” and he required medical attention thereafter.

Five days after the attack, the FBI received information from an anonymous online tipper that Starer had boasted she was “prepared” for a march on the Capitol by bringing along “mesh knife-proof clothing and bottles of pepper spray.” Sometime in May of 2022, the doctor’s employee was asked if they recognized Starer in the images from January 6; the coworker responded, “that’s Jackie.”

Multiple allegations, including “forcibly attacking, refusing, obstructing, and impeding federal officials” and “engaging in physical violence in a Capitol Building,” are listed on Starer’s arrest warrant.
