Alleged Capitol rioter busted after whiskey-fueled anti-FBI TikTok rant


A Jack Daniels-fueled, f-bomb laced TikTok rant that included a threat to use her “second amendment” rights led the FBI to arrest a Florida woman who allegedly took part in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, authorities said.

Suzanne Kaye’s prolific use of social media caught the FBI’s attention after the riot, with agents calling her Jan. 28 after seeing a video about the Capitol riot posted on a Facebook page called “Angry Patriot Hippie,” authorities said.

Kaye claimed she hadn’t been to the Capitol but knew people who did go, the feds said in court papers.

“Kaye further indicated that she was retired and had plenty of time to talk, but would need to be interviewed at her residence because she was not able to drive,” the FBI stated in court documents.

But a second video, posted to TikTok and flagged to the feds by a tipster, led the feds to her doorstep, authorities said.

“Friends, I’m here to let you know I need a drink,” Kaye, 59, declares in the TikTok video posted Jan. 31, before she takes a giant swig from a bottle of Jack Daniels Red Label.

With a cover of the Police song, “Every Breath You Take,” playing in the background, Kaye explains that she just got a call from the FBI and claims she told them they would have to arrest her before she would talk to them.

“You just spent four years persecuting a three star general with no evidence and you f–king think I’m going to let you come talk to me?” Kaye demands as her rant escalates,, presumably referring to former National Security Advisor Gen. Michael Flynn.

“I’m an American. I know my f—ing rights! My First Amendment right to free speech, my Second Amendment right to carry a gun, to shoot your f—ing ass if you come to my house. So f–k you, f–k you following me!”

I’m glad you know who I am, motherf—ker,” concludes Kaye, whose social media version of the story differed from the FBI’s account.

Citing a violent history — Kaye had previously been arrested for domestic battery in January 2010 and aggravated assault in February 2020, though the latter charges dropped — the FBI charged her with “transmitting in interstate commerce a communication containing a threat to injure the person of another,” court papers say.

She made her first appearance in court last week, according to CBS 12 News, and is due for a bond hearing Wednesday.

Separately, a mother and son from Iowa were also arrested in relation to the Capitol riot.

Deborah Sandoval, of Des Moines, and her son, Salvador Sandoval Jr., 23, of Ankeny, made initial court appearances Friday on charges stemming from the violent attack, the Des Moines Register reported.

The documents detailing their alleged involvement in the insurrection were sealed by the court, so the circumstances surrounding their arrests were not immediately available.
