NYC garbage man who stormed US Capitol quits job

The QAnon-supporting garbage man who was federally charged for participating in the US Capitol riot earlier this month has quit his job at the city Department of Sanitation, an agency spokesperson said.

The suspect, 43-year-old Dominick Madden, resigned instead of face disciplinary charges from the department after his arrest, a DSNY spokesperson said.

Madden was arrested last week when feds tracked him down after a Post story clearly identified him as a participant in the riot, where five people died, including a Capitol Police officer who was beaten to death.

Madden was seen in photos and videos standing outside the Capitol on Jan. 6, wearing a QAnon sweatshirt and screaming slogans related to the conspiracy theory.

“When we go one, we go all! Let’s go!” he shouts in one of the videos. “This is our country! This is our country!”

Before his arrest, an agency spokesperson said any city employee who participated in the riot would be fired from their job.

“Mayor de Blasio has been very clear that if we have proof that a city employee was involved in this attack, they will not be working for New York City any longer. DSNY will assist our partners at NYPD and federal law enforcement in any way we can,” the spokesperson said.

At an initial court appearance last week, Madden was sprung on $250,000 bond.
