District Judge Timothy Kelly on Tuesday revoked the pretrial release of North Carolina native James Tate Grant, a man accused of assaulting two police officers at the Jan. 6, 2021, U.S. Capitol riot, according to NBC News.

Grant, 29, was ordered back to jail after authorities said he was caught driving drunk on Dec. 7 and attempting to flee, a court document obtained by the network showed. Police also found an AR-15 rifle and over 60 rounds of ammunition in his car.

According to a police report detailing the incident, Grant was making statements such as ''Just kill me now'' and ''It's over.'' In addition, his urine sample tested positive for amphetamines on two separate occasions during his release.

Grant was arrested on Oct. 14, 2021, on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 riot earlier in the year, including assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers using a dangerous weapon or inflicting bodily injury; civil disorder; and an act of physical violence in the Capitol grounds or buildings.

Grant pleaded not guilty to all charges related to the event on Tuesday, according to NBC.

On specific conditions, Grant was released on Oct. 21, 2021. It was determined he had violated several of them after the December arrest, The Hill reported.

''He has abused the release privileges given to him by the Court in several ways,'' the court document stated. ''The Defendant had an opportunity to respect the Government and Court's trust in his release pending trial, but has apparently made the conscious decision to abuse [those] privileges.''

''Grant's statements are of such a concerning nature that there is reason to believe he is a danger not only to the community but also to himself,'' it added.
