MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police have hand-cuffed a protester at the state Capitol after he apparently tried to charge into the state Assembly. Thousands of protesters have jammed the Capitol for days to complain about a Republican bill that would strip most public workers of almost all their collective bargaining rights.

Moments before a roll call began in the Assembly Thursday, reporters heard a crash outside the chamber. They rushed out and saw a man on the ground. Police officers were on top of him. They handcuffed him and led him away. A legislative aide says he saw the man rush from the line of protesters and try to charge into the chamber. The man tripped and the police captured him.

Only a handful of lawmakers were on the floor when the incident happened.
