No forcible arrests in capitol tonight

“A decision has been made to do what they’ve been doing all week long and that is to do everything to keep things peaceful and keep people safe,” said Peg Schmidt, spokeswoman for the police command in the Capitol. “There’s not going to be any forcible removal.”

But officials would still like to clear the building so that it can be cleaned.

“We are still looking for voluntary compliance and for people to leave because we believe the cleaning operation is important,” Schmidt said.

Schmidt said the plan is to open the Capitol again at 8 a.m., but cleaning will be going on throughout the day.
