MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Police say a Minnesota man who broke into the Wisconsin Capitol through a first-floor window and was found unconscious on the roof is now facing criminal charges.

The Wisconsin Department of Administration says 21-year-old Andrew Bishop smashed a window Sunday to get into the Capitol. Authorities say the Roseville, Minn., man then grabbed a fire extinguisher and threw it through another window.

Police found Bishop passed out on the fourth-floor rooftop just below the dome's observation deck. A criminal complaint says an officer described Bishop as very drunk and ultimately apologetic.

Bishop is charged in Dane County with felony criminal damage and entry into a locked building, a misdemeanor.

He was in jail on a $1,000 bond Wednesday and doesn't yet have an attorney. He's due in court next week.
