Logan was arrested by the FBI on Tuesday, August 17, 2021, for his role in the Capitol Riots. He was recognized by social media sleuths Sedition Hunters after he shared a series of Instagram posts flaunting his physique.
During the hunt for him, he gained the nickname ‘CatSweat’, due to him wearing a Caterpillar sweatshirt in the alleged footage of him at the violent insurrection on January 6, 2021.
On his incriminating Instagram account, Barnhart was reportedly seen posing in videos. Barnhart is believed to work as an equipment operator for his dad’s company, Barnhart & Son Inc, as well as modeling part-time.
His side hustle has seen him grace the covers of a string of raunchy novels – including one about the forbidden love of step-siblings, titled, ‘Stepbrother UnSEALed: A Bad Boy Military Romance’.
As well as his significant social media presence, Barnhart also has a YouTube channel with 92 subscribers.

Barnhart e is said to be the same man spotted in harrowing footage pulling a cop downstairs at the Capitol before the officer was violently beaten with a flagpole by another rioter. That man was one of the most high-profile suspects being hunted by authorities and the Sedition Hunters, who dubbed him ‘CatSweat’.
In the images captured on January 6, Barnhart is also sporting sunglasses and an American flag baseball cap.
Sleuths found footage of the man from earlier in the day on Jan. 6 without sunglasses, then used facial recognition to match it to photos of a man named Logan Barnhart on bodybuilding sites and cheap romance novels. https://t.co/fjxlnr1c9Q

Just over two hours later at 4:11 pm, he is seen in the throes of the mob pulling the officer down the steps outside a tunnel on the western side of the building. Barnhart evaded capture for several months after the attack until his own Instagram thirst led to his downfall, according to the Huffington Post.
The net closed in when the sleuths found the 2 pm footage of Barnhart minus his sunglasses.
Barnhart poses on the cover of one book called ‘Stepbrother UnSEALed: A Bad Boy Military Romance’, shirtless and showing off his numerous chest and arm tattoos, and a smoldering look.
In the novel, by Nicole Snow, the reader follows the forbidden love of step-siblings Delia and Chris.
