Jacob Chansley, one of the rioters at the Capitol Hill insurrection in January who drew public attention and the nickname QAnon Shaman for his outlandish attire, has been transferred to Alexandria’s William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center.
The move comes after the D.C. Department of Corrections requested Chansley be transferred following a court order that confirmed Chansley’s right to only be fed organic food, Buzzfeed News reported.

The Alexandria Sheriff’s Office confirmed the transfer, noting that the details of his custody are being handled by the U.S. Marshals.
Chansley is one of 43 people charged with interference with law enforcement, weapons crimes, threats or property crimes but not conspiracy or assault, according to the Washington Post.
