A criminal complaint accuses 21-year-old Andrew Bishop of scaling the outside of the Capitol on Sunday and smashing a window to get into the building. It says the intoxicated Roseville, Minn., man grabbed a fire extinguisher and threw it through another window.

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

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