This undated photo provided by the United States Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Texas shows Garret Miller after he was arrested in Dallas. Miller didn’t speak to the law enforcement officers who arrested him on charges he stormed the U.S. Capitol in January, but the T-shirt he was wearing at his Dallas home that day sent a clear and possibly incriminating message. Miller’s shirt had a photograph of former President Donald Trump, and it said “Take America Back” and “I Was There, Washington D.C., January 6, 2021,” federal prosecutors noted in a court filing Monday, March 29, 2021.

A federal judge has refused to set bail for a Texas man who was wearing a T-shirt that said he was in Washington on the day of the U.S. Capitol riots when he was arrested on charges he stormed the building.

U.S. Judge Carl Nichols on Thursday ordered Garret Miller to remain jailed pending trial. Miller didn’t give a statement to the law enforcement officers who arrested him at his home two weeks after the riots, prosecutors said.

But they noted he was wearing a T-shirt that had a photograph of former President Donald Trump, and it said “Take America Back” and “I Was There, Washington D.C., January 6, 2021.”
