Cusick’s son, Casey, was also arrested. The arrest was made in front of his 3-year-old. The toddler was stressed and she kept asking why the police was locking her father’s hands. Casey wasn’t accused of violence and vandalism.

Videos of the arrests made rounds on the Internet.

The whole thing happened Thursday morning.

“This morning I saw a sheriff pull up in our driveway with his lights on and there was about four or five other cars with them,” his daughter Staci told the Gateway Pundit. “They came up to our front door and I told my dad to go answer it. As he started towards the door they started banging and banging and saying ‘open up we have a warrant.’ He opened the door and they asked him his name and to step outside.”

Staci said that the officers spotted her standing in the kitchen and asked her to go outside. She got to the front yard and watched the arrest of her father. They asked him to turn around and handcuffed him.

“They asked me my name and I told them I was his daughter Staci. They said they were not looking for me, but told me to put my hands on the back of the sheriff’s vehicle. My dad asked what it was about and they told him it was because he entered the Capitol building on January 6.”

James Cusick was shocked and devastated. When he arrived at the Capitol, he was friendly with the police. They directed him to the bathroom. Staci said her father wasn’t forced to leave the area. The man defended himself, but agents and sheriffs warned him. James was reminded that everything he says or does can be used against him.

“I asked him if they would take the handcuffs off of him because I was upset seeing my 73-year-old father in handcuffs. They said no,” Staci said.

James and Staci were taken inside. Agents told him to get the clothes he was wearing that day. He had to take his passport as well. Staci had to bring it to court when she does to get him after the arraignment.  Staci was told that her father will be tried in the state of Virginia or Washington, DC.

“I told them that my dad is a veteran and he has never ever been in trouble with the law. They told me that they understand that, but ‘he did break the law,’” she said. “I told them my dad is opposed to any type of vandalism and that he never even saw any when he was there. When he was standing there in the Capitol, the police or guards, not sure which they were, were talking to him and being kind. They showed him where the bathrooms were. Nobody was telling them to get out. There was never any type of warning that they were breaking the law. None of that was happening.”

Several photos from the Department of Justice support Cusick’s story. The man was just talking with the officers.

“They said that they understand that and that they’re ‘not the bad guys, we’re just here doing what we’re told,’” Staci said. “My dad loves this country. He volunteered to go to Vietnam and fight. He served 16 months there proudly. He has taken so many kids on trips to Washington, DC, to let them see this great country. He’s very passionate about this nation. He’s a pastor and he holds the Constitution in a very high regard. He hates what is happening to this country, but he would never vandalize or harm any government property, or anything for that matter. He’s a very upstanding man and I was devastated to see him taken away.”

Staci started to cry. She said, “there’s just no reason for it. He did nothing to deserve what we saw this morning. I don’t understand why they would feel okay doing this to someone like him. I think they felt bad about it, but they kept saying it’s their job.”

Agents arrived at the home of James’ friend who was with him and his son at the building on January 6. They were all taken into custody.

“My brother lives in another town close by, about 15 minutes away,” Staci explained. “He was arrested just before my father was arrested, but we did not know at the time.”

The toddler “was standing right there saying ‘why are they locking his hands, mommy?’”

Staci said her brother isn’t a violent person. He is definitely not a vandal.

Agents really wanted to see the clothes James was wearing that they. They wanted to see Casey’s hat. Yes, it was a red hat that read “Trump” on the front.

“As they pulled into their neighborhood, the FBI was waiting for him,” Staci explained. “They arrested him right in the street in front of all his neighbors.”


Attorney John Pierce represents many of the protesters, including James and his son. His new organization, the National Constitutional Law Union INC (NCLU) preserves and protects the United States Constitution and the US way of life “by providing legal support and funding to individuals whose Constitutional rights, civil liberties and similar rights are being violated or in jeopardy.”

“The process obviously continues of federal authorities rounding up American citizens with respect to January 6th. The NCLU is honored to be stepping in to provide support for these defendants and their lawyers,” Pierce said. “It is a very unique, difficult and uncertain time in American history. What is certain is that these defendants will be pleading not guilty to all charges. We look forward to trial and getting to the bottom of what actually happened on January 6th.”
