A Busy Day for the U.S. Capitol Police
There must be something in the water today. Many arrests in just a few short hours.
"At around 9:40 a.m. police wrestled a man into custody as he attempted to run up the East front steps to the House chamber." Turns out he was armed and had a bag of weed.
Then, "Less than 30 minutes later, Capitol Police responded to a growing ruckus in the Capitol Rotunda, where they would end up arresting more than two dozen protesters as they chained themselves together and objected to a continuing national ban on funding for needle-exchange programs."
Who says nothing interesting happens at the U.S. Capitol...
