A SUPREME Court judge’s son who was arrested for allegedly stealing a police shield and bulletproof vest while storming the Capitol covered in fur pelts appeared in court and cried.

Aaron Mostofsky, of New York City, was arrested on Tuesday, an FBI spokeswoman told Reuters, and went to court the same day.

Mostofsky, 34, wearing Baby Yoda pajama pants instead of fur, shed tears when he appeared before US Magistrate Judge Sanket Bulsara.

The son of Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge Shlomo Mostofsky was released on a $100,000 bond and faces up to 10 years in prison.

In a criminal complaint released on Tuesday, the Justice Department charged Aaron Mostofsky with theft of government property, unlawful entry, knowingly impeding government business and disorderly conduct.

Bulsara called the charges “quite grave” and imposed restrictions on Aaron Mostofsky including GPS monitoring and ordered him to reside with his brother.

Aaron Mostofsky’s bond is to be secured through real estate.

The judge’s son, who told the New York Post Wednesday he’d come to protest a “stolen election,” was holding a police riot shield as a mob of rioters swarmed the building on Wednesday.

“We were cheated. I don’t think 75 million people voted for Trump — I think it was close to 85 million,” he told the Post.

“I think certain states that have been red for a long time turned blue and were stolen, like New York.”

The complaint cites the reporting by the Post, and says that he was photographed carrying a U.S. Capitol Police shield and wearing a police vest, both of which are valued at more than $2000.

During the riot, Aaron Mostofsky was dressed in fur pelts and a bulletproof vest and joined protesters who swarmed the halls of Congress, according to the Gothamist.

He was pictured in widely circulated photographs while going down the stairs outside the Senate Chamber in the bizarre outfit while also carrying a walking stick.

His brother, Nachman Mostofsky, is vice president of the South Brooklyn Conservative Club, and an elected district leader in the borough.

He also attended the rally, but said he left before the group entered the Capitol building.


He told the outlet: “My brother did nothing illegal…He definitely was not part of the riot.”

Like the vast majority of those who breached the capitol, Aaron Mostofsky was permitted to leave without arrest.

Video of Aaron Mostofsky’s arrest on Tuesday showed FBI agents leaving his brother’s home holding the fur pelts and the walking stick.
