MADISON (WKOW) -- Representative Nick Milroy (D-South Range) had a confrontation with Capitol police as he tried to enter the building Thursday night.
Milroy was trying to get clothes from his office but police would not let him into the building. They tackled him as he tried to get past officers guarding a door. He was able to get the door open and struggled with policy before they took him to the ground.
Everyone was ordered out of the Capitol Thursday night as part of a Dane County judge's ruling. The building will remain closed until 8 a.m. Monday morning.
