A photo appearing to show the martial artist taking a selfie with a Trump supporter in Washington, D.C. began circulating on Twitter, implying that Norris attended. At least five people died as a result of the riot.

Norris is best known for playing the karate-kicking lawman Cordell Walker in "Walker, Texas Ranger" which ran between 1993 and 2001. Authorities continue to search for others who were involved.More news: Walmart to create fintech startup with Ribbit Capital
