Guests listen during a ceremony memorialising US Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, as an urn with his cremated remains lies in honour on a black-draped table at the centre of the Capitol Rotunda, February 3.
The idea that Sicknick died after being sprayed by a chemical irritant has emerged in recent weeks as a new theory in the case.
Earlier this month, news organizations that had reported Sicknick died after being struck with a fire extinguisher backed away from those reports as law enforcement sources told several outlets that they suspected Sicknick possibly died from exposure to a chemical irritant, like bear spray. If convicted, they could each face up to 20 years in prison.
"Give me that bear s--", Khater allegedly said to Tanios on video recorded at Capitol at 2:14 p.m., where Sicknick and other officers were standing guard behind metal bicycle racks, arrest papers say, the Post reported.
The Post report said authorities filed charges after tipsters contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation and allegedly identified Khater and Tanios from wanted images the Federal Bureau of Investigation publicized, which had been culled from surveillance video and officer-worn body camera footage, arrest papers say.

In a statement Monday, Capitol Police Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman called the attack on the Capitol and its officers "an attack on our democracy".
Officials have not said specifically what they think led to Sicknick's death and the medical examiner's report on Sicknick's death is incomplete, the AP reports. Police have not determined the cause of Sicknick's death and have not charged Khater and Tanios with homicide. However, according to the statement, Sicknick returned to his office, where he collapsed, was brought to the hospital, and was later declared dead.
