WKOW in Madison, Wisc., posted some stunning video Thursday night, apparently showing state Representative Nick Milroy (D) being tackled by Capitol police as he tried to enter the building.According to KWOW, “Milroy was trying to get clothes from his office but police would not let him into the building.”

Capitol Police Public Information Officer Tim Donovan told TPM this morning he had not yet heard about the incident.

Late Update: Mary Lou Keleher, a staffer for Milroy, told TPM that the representative was not arrested last night.

“He was just restrained,” Keleher said.

According to Keleher, Milroy will be issuing a statement about the incident shortly.
