Democratic Representative Nick Milroy of South Range in northwestern Wisconsin was trying to retrieve some clothes from his office in the Capitol Thursday night. Video from WISN-TV shows police officers pulling him away from a revolving door and tackling him to the ground before he is able to show his ID.

A judge ruled Thursday that no one can stay at the Capitol overnight to protest Gov. Scott Walker’s proposal to eliminate most collective bargaining rights for public workers. Milroy was one of four Democratic Assembly members who moved their desks outside the Capitol Tuesday after public access was restricted.
