Capitol Police refers Bowman fire alarm incident to prosecutors

Capitol Police have referred Rep. Jamaal Bowman to prosecutors over his triggering a Capitol campus fire alarm last month, the department announced Wednesday.

The Hill’s police force had started their investigation after Bowman (D-N.Y.) pulled a fire alarm during the chaotic leadup to a vote on a GOP stopgap funding bill at the end of September. Bowman’s office had described the alarm incident as a mistake, driven by the congressman rushing to the vote. Republicans were incensed and some had threatened to move to expel Bowman from the House.
