Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman, who helped defend the US Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection, said that the riot could have "easily been a bloodbath" had it not been for the restraint shown by law enforcement.

In his first interview, given to the podcast 3 Brothers No Sense on Monday, Goodman broke his silence after more than a year to describe what it was like being chased by a violent pro-Trump mob determined to stop Joe Biden from becoming certified as president.

The incident, captured on a viral video, catapulted Goodman to fame after he was credited with protecting outgoing Vice President Mike Pence and members of Congress who were in the Senate certifying Biden's victory. Video footage also showed that Goodman frantically warned Sen. Mitt Romney to take cover shortly before facing off against the rioters.

He has since escorted Vice President Kamala Harris at the inauguration and been on the cover of Time magazine.

Goodman, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, gave his firsthand account of what it was really like to be the lone cop being chased by an angry mob inside the Capitol. Read more.
