MADISON (AP) — Capitol police have issued seven citations following protests at the state Capitol on Monday, September 10th.

Unlike last week, when 12 citations were issued to people at the Capitol, the ones one Monday were served at the ticketed people’s home addresses.

Department of Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis says three people were ticketed both for unlawful display of a sign and not having a permit. One person was ticketed solely for not having a permit.

Marquis did not explain why the citations were not issued in person.

Protesters have routinely congregated in the Capitol to sing songs, hold banners and display signs that are generally in opposition to Gov. Scott Walker and Republicans.

Walker’s new Capitol police chief has said he was going to be more aggressive in requiring them to have permits.
