- Bradley Rukstales, the CEO and president of Cogensia, told WBEZ that he was arrested for unlawful entry, which was the first time he’s ever been arrested in his life. “It was the single worst personal decision of my life,” Rukstales said. “I have no excuse for my actions and wish that I could take them back.”
- “My decision to enter the Capitol was wrong, and I am deeply regretful to have done so,” Rukstales said in a statement. “I offer my sincere apologies for my indiscretion, and I deeply regret that my actions have brought embarrassment to my family, colleagues, friends and fellow countrymen.”
- In a post to Twitter this Thursday, Rukstales’ employer announced that he has been placed on leave while the incident is investigated. “Our CEO, Brad Rukstales’ participated in the recent Washington DC protests,” the tweet from Cognesia read. “He has been placed on leave of absence while we assess further.”
