The video appears to show Lemhouse approach the east side of the Capitol at 10:57 p.m. before throwing a heavy object through a door’s glass. Less than two minutes later, he appears to damage a security car in the building’s loading dock.
At 11:01 p.m., he ends up on the west side of the building, kicking in a door and entering the Capitol, Channel 2 reported.
In contrast, the initial Georgia Department of Public Safety statement said a nearby Capitol police officer spotted Lemhouse breaking mirrors off a patrol car at 11:30 p.m. before chasing him into the building.

In a new statement provided to Channel 2, a DPS spokesperson said, “The information disseminated were the initial reports received from the Capitol Police Command ... The information given was believed to be a factual synopsis and was prior to the completion of incident reports. Information does often change ...”
Investigators say the man was high on cocaine when he broke into the state capitol.
Lemhouse spent about 17 minutes inside the Capitol, where he allegedly used an American flag to smash lights, windows and two paintings of former governors. He’s also accused of using the flag pole to strike a security guard who overheard the commotion.
Lemhouse was briefly able to escape the guard, running to the third floor of the building, where he kicked in the secretary of the senate’s office door and continued his rampage, authorities said. At one point, police used a Taser on the man, but it was not enough to stop him.
He was taken into custody outside of the building on Washington Street. Lemhouse was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, where doctors determined he had cocaine in his system.
Lemhouse pleaded not guilty to the six charges he faces, according to Fulton County court records. Those include criminal trespass, second-degree criminal damage to property, interference with government property, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and two counts of simple battery.
He remains in the county’s jail without bond, jail records show.
