An Alpharetta man who previously pleaded guilty to assaulting two law enforcement officers in the Jan. 6, 2021 storming of the U.S. Capitol has been sentenced to 27 months in prison.

According to a news release from the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, Kevin Douglas Creek, 47, of Alpharetta was sentenced on Monday, May 2. Creek was arrested in Georgia on June 9 and pleaded guilty to the charges of assaulting, resisting or impeding officers.

“According to court documents, on Jan. 6, at approximately 2:28 p.m., Creek made physical contact with an officer from the Metropolitan Police Department by striking the officer’s left hand, which was holding a baton. One minute later, he made physical contact with a U.S. Capitol Police Officer by placing his hand under the officer’s right shoulder and pushing,” the release said.

“He also kicked the officer. The assaults took place in the West Terrace area of the Capitol.”

The release said, following his prison term, Creek will be placed on 12 months of supervised release and is ordered to pay $2,000 in restitution. 

According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 10, a complainant reported to the FBI that Creek had been at Northside Hospital Forsyth on Jan. 9 or 10 and made comments about his involvement in the breach, including “running up the stairs of the Capitol building and attempting to get inside, … having trouble at the door he ran to because the police were gassing individuals at his door” and that “he was bruised from his activity at the Capitol.”

Investigators were able to confirm Creek’s identity and his whereabouts in the days before and after the breach through his social media pages, comparing photos from the incident and the pages with his driver’s license photo, hotel, credit card and Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority records and other methods.



During a voluntary interview with investigators, Creek and his attorney in May 2021, he reportedly admitted he had traveled to the Capitol and that the photos were of him.

“[Investigators] then played videos of both assaults on federal officers, and Creek admitted the videos looked like him, but Creek said he ‘did not remember assaulting any officer,’” the complaint said. “In addition, Creek described in great detail where he went that day and drew on a map where he was standing on the U.S. Capitol grounds. Creek’s drawing matches where the body camera footage captured [Creek’s] assaults.”

According to the complaint, when asked by investigators if he regretted his action, Creek responded “50/50.”

The case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Department of Justice National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section. Valuable assistance was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Georgia. 

Since the events of Jan. 6, 2021, “nearly 800 individuals have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including over 250 individuals charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement,” the release said.
