Wisconsin Capitol protester released from jail
MADISON, WI (AP) — A protester arrested at the Wisconsin Capitol has been released from jail with no charges filed.
Twenty-two-year-old Damon Terrell was arrested at the Capitol on Monday and spent three days in jail. The Wisconsin State Journal reported Friday that Terrell had been released on a signature bond and barred from being on the Capitol grounds while his case is pending.
Terrell had been held on tentative charges of felony battery and misdemeanor resisting or obstructing. He is accused of injuring a Capitol Police officer as he was arrested during the daily singalong.
Protesters have been gathering at noon at the Capitol for more than two years to sing songs protesting Gov. Scott Walker.
It is up to District Attorney Ismael Ozanne to decide whether formal charges will be filed.
