Josiah Colt was pictured lowering himself onto the Senate floor while wearing a helmet.
The 34-year-old was placed in custody on Tuesday afternoon in Idaho, according to local news.
Colt was previously labeled as a person of interest due to unlawful entry into the US Capitol last week.
Following the break-in, Colt posted a video on Facebook where he claimed he was the first rioter to sit in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's chair, the outlet reported.
"I just got in the Capitol building," he reportedly said in the footage. "I hopped down into the chamber."
However, he later issued a statement to the Idaho News apologizing for his actions.
"[I] sincerely apologize to the American people," Colt said in the statement.
"I recognize my actions that have brought shame upon myself, my family, my friends, and my beautiful country. In the moment I thought I was doing the right thing.
"I realize now that my actions were inappropriate and I beg for forgiveness from America and my home state of Idaho."
The infamous protester who was pictured wearing a "Camp Auschwitz" hoodie was also arrested in Newport News, Virginia, a law enforcement source told a CBS reporter.
The offensive sweater also read "work brings freedom," which is a translation of "Arbeit mach frei" that was branded on the gates of concentration camps.
At least 1.1million people were killed at concentration camps during World War II.
The latest additions join Supreme Court judge son Aaron Mostofosky and "QAnon shaman" Jake Angeli.
Mostofsky, of New York City, was arrested on Tuesday, an FBI spokeswoman told Reuters, and went to court the same day.
The Justice Department charged Mostofsky with theft of government property, unlawful entry, knowingly impeding government business and disorderly conduct.
Angeli, whose real name is Jacob Chansley, turned himself into the FBI on Saturday.
He has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. Both charges are federal misdemeanors.
