Alleged Capitol rioter busted after anti-FBI TikTok rant
An F-bomb TikTok rant fueled by Jack Daniels, threatening to use her “second amendment” rights, prompted the FBI to arrest a Florida woman who allegedly participated in the January 6th Capitol riot would have.
Suzanne Kaye’s prolific use of social media caught the FBI’s attention after the uprising. Agents called her on Jan. 28 after seeing a video of the Capitol riot posted on a Facebook page called “Angry Patriot Hippie.”
Kaye claimed she had not been to the Capitol but knew people who had left, the government said in court records.
“Kaye said she was retired and had plenty of time to talk, but had to be interviewed in her apartment because she couldn’t drive,” the FBI said in court documents.
But a second video, posted on TikTok and reported to the government by a tipster, took the government to their doorstep, authorities said.
“Friends, I’m here to let you know I have a drink,” said 59-year-old Kaye in the TikTok video on January 31, before taking a huge swig from a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Red Label.
With a cover of the police song “Every Breath You Take” in the background, Kaye explains that she just received a call from the FBI and claims they need to arrest her before speaking to them.

“You’ve just spent four years pursuing a three-star general with no evidence and you think I’ll let you come to see me?” Urges Kaye as her ranting escalates, presumably with reference to former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn.
“I’m American. I know my rights! My first right to change free speech, my second right to change the right to carry a gun, on your ass when you come to my house. So f – k you, f – k you follow me ! “
Glad you know who I am, moron, ”concludes Kaye, whose social media version of the story differs from the FBI’s report.
Citing a violent history – Kaye had previously been arrested in January 2010 for household batteries and had committed a serious assault in February 2020 despite the dropping of the latter charges – the FBI accused her of “having sent a notice in interstate trade which carries the risk of harming someone else’s person, “say court records
She first appeared in court last week, according to CBS 12 News, and is due to hold a bond hearing on Wednesday.
