UNDATED (WSAU) Prosecutors said a Minnesota man was drunk when he climbed five stories to break into the Wisconsin State Capitol last weekend. 21-year-old Andrew Bishop of the Twin Cities’ suburb of Roseville was charged yesterday with felony criminal damage, and a misdemeanor count of entering a locked building.
Authorities said Bishop scaled the outside of the Capitol building early last Sunday, and broke a window to get in. Officials said he grabbed a fire extinguisher and tossed it through another window. Police found him passed out on a dome outside one of the windows – and he reportedly woke up and started kicking the glass again. Officers said Bishop said he felt like an angel and wanted to fly – and he apologized several times for damaging the Capitol. He was sent to the Dane County Jail on $1,000 bond. And he’s due back in court a week from tomorrow, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
