Capitol Police make arrest after July 8 bomb threat

The Wisconsin State Capitol Police have made an arrest related to the July 8 bomb threat at the Capitol, according to Department of Administration.  
Due to an ongoing investigation and prosecution, Department of Administration will be releasing additional information in the future.
State Capitol police gave the all clear just under two hours after a credible bomb threat evacuated the capitol building in Madison.
CBS 58's David Ade was among the hundreds attending the budget debate when the announcement was made to clear out the building.
Ade reported that people moved quickly, but in an orderly way out of the building and across the street as instructed by police on scene.
Hundreds of people who had set up lawn chairs for a concert were all moved a block away.
A perimeter was in place as authorities awaited the arrival of bomb sniffing dogs.
The entire Capitol building and surrounding square was evacuated for roughly 2 hours.
