UPDATE

According to an Article on TPM, Rep Milroy admits he acted aggressivly but then tries to blame the Governor Walker's "Armed Atmosphere" for the incident:

"Wisconsin state Representative Nick Milroy (D), the lawmaker who was tackled last night while trying to enter the Capitol building in Madison, said in a statement Friday that both he and the law enforcement officers involved in the incident had acted aggressively, but that "no harm was done." He did, however, have some harsh words for what he calls the "armed-palace environment created by Gov. Walker."

Milroy said he has been "extremely frustrated by Gov. Walker's lockdown of the Capitol this week." For two days, he said, he has held office hours outside, "in the cold."

"No lawmaker should have to go to that extent to talk to the people he represents, and the citizens of Wisconsin should have access to the people they elected to represent them," Milroy said. "This armed-palace environment created by Gov. Walker has everyone feeling very tense and emotions are running high."
