Authorities said Sunday that Louis Anthony Alaniz, 24, of Houston is charged with interfering with the duty of a police officer.
Alaniz left the besieged Mount Carmel compound Saturday at about 3:30 p.m. wearing a T-shirt referring to cult leader Vernon Howell as “David Koresh, God.” He is being held in the McLennan County Jail without bond. Authorities also are holding Alaniz as a material witness.
Alaniz slipped through the lines of federal agents surrounding the Mount Carmel compound March 25, surprising cultists inside.
Jesse Amen, a California man who sneaked into the compound March 26 and came out April 4, also remains in McLennan County Jail charged with interfering with the duty of a police officer.
