A journalist has been arrested after attempting to breach secret service agents at the State Capitol.
According to a criminal complaint, Daniel Heyman, 54, of Charleston, was aggressively breaching secret service agents to the point where agents were forced to remove him a couple of times from the area leading up the hallway to the main building of the Capitol.
