Beverly Hill salon owner Gina Bisignano, who made headlines late last year for anti-LGBTQ verbal attacks, was indicted on seven counts for her alleged role in disgraced former president Donald Trump’s January 6 attempted Capitol coup. At least five people died as a result of the insurrection.

The charges were first reported by HuffPost senior justice reporter Ryan Reilly.

Among the charges listed on grand jury document are Aiding and Abetting, Obstruction of an Official Proceeding, Civil Disorder, Destruction of Government Property, Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds, and Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building.
