According to legal documents, Chapman began messaging a woman on Bumble a few days after January 6 and dished that he was part of the failed coup attempt.
“I did storm the capitol,” Chapman wrote. “I made it all the way into Statuary Hall!”
Federal prosecutors included screenshots of the messages, in which Chapman boasted of his interviews with The Washington Post and other media.
The woman simply replied “we are not a match.”
Court documents say the woman turned him in with those screenshots.
Sources told TMZ Chapman was also reported by another user and then banned from Bumble in January.
Authorities say Chapman goes by the name Robert Erick on social media, where they found even more incriminating posts.
On Facebook, Chapman wrote he had left “the rotten apple” of New York City and was on his way “down to the District of Criminality to Enjoy some much deserved Entertainment.”

In another post a day later, Chapman posted a picture of himself at the riots with the caption of “I’M F**KIN INSIDE THE CRAPITOL!!!”
The feds have since arrested Chapman and charged him trespassing and disorderly conduct on restricted government property.
Although Chapman is one of more than 370 people that have been arrested for storming the Capitol, he is only one of a handful arrested through a dating app.
