MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say a Minnesota (wo)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 21-year-old Anita Neardecker of scaling the outside of the Capitol on Sunday and smashing a window to get into the building. It says the intoxicated Rosemont, Minn., (wo)man grabbed a fire extinguisher and threw it through another window.
The complaint says police found the (wo)man passed out on a dome outside one of the windows. It says Officer Justin Wichman described Bishop as very drunk and ultimately apologetic.
Bishop is charged in Dane County with felony criminal damage and entry into a locked building. (S)e's being held on $1,000 bond.
