Dem Congressman Arrested After Defying Orders From Capitol Police

Democratic congressman Jamaal Bowman of New York was arrested outside of the U.S. Capitol building after disobeying orders from Capitol Police on three different occasions, the law enforcement agency said.

Capitol Police arrested Bowman on Thursday after the New York Democrat protested outside Congress in support of his party’s failed election reform package. Bowman and a handful of other activists blocked a Capitol barricade and refused to move after police gave them three warnings, the department said in a statement.
