Police Tackle Dem. Representative At Wisconsin Capitol
South Range Representative Nick Milroy was mistaken by police as a protester and subsequently taken down when he attempted to go into the building.
Earlier Thursday, a judge had ordered the closure of the rotunda to the public, and some of the protesters who had been camped out inside didn't want to leave.
The whole altercation was caught on film by WISN-TV, igniting a free-for-all across the Internet. However, Milroy maintains that it was merely a misunderstanding, and told the Wisconsin State Journal that he was pleased with the way the police handled the situation. "There was no harm, no foul in this incident... It's been a long couple of weeks for law enforcement officers, it's been a long couple of weeks for me.
