Drunken man found passed out on Wis. capitol dome

MADISON, Wis. – Police said a Minnesota man who broke into the Wisconsin Capitol through a fifth-floor window and was found unconscious on the dome’s roof has been charged with felony criminal damage.

A criminal complaint accuses Andrew Bishop, 21, of scaling the outside of the Capitol on Sunday and smashing a window to get into the building.

It said the intoxicated Roseville, Minn., man grabbed a fire extinguisher and threw it through another window.

The complaint said police found Bishop passed out on a dome outside one of the windows. It said Officer Justin Wichman described Bishop as very drunk and ultimately apologetic.

The State Journal (http://tinyurl.com/95zffg7) reported Bishop is charged in Dane County with felony criminal damage and entry into a locked building. He’s being held on $1,000 bond.
