BREAKING: Dem Rep. Jamaal Bowman Being Questioned by Police for Pulling Fire Alarm at Capitol Office Bldg
While House Democrats were attempting to adjourn until Monday, despite a looming government shutdown, they got a little assist when a fire alarm sounded in the Cannon House Office Building, forcing an evacuation. Unfortunately for them, Politico is reporting that Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) is the person who pulled it, and that he's on film doing so.
Fox's Chad Pergram says that the US Capitol Police criminal investigation unit are questioning Bowman.
Pergram's tweet was deleted, but the House Administration Committee GOP wrote:
if Bowman pulled the alarm without cause, he could face criminal charges.
