At approximately 10:30 a.m. today, United States Capitol Police arrested Joshua Fox of Milanville, Pa. in room 2318 of the Rayburn House office building. He is charged with unlawful entry, and he is currently being processed at United States Capitol Police headquarters.
According to Politico:
Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Josh Fox was led away in handcuffs from a House Science Committee hearing Wednesday morning after refusing to pack up his camera.
Fox was led out by Capitol Police shortly after 10 a.m., before the hearing could be gaveled into order. The “Gasland” director was attempting to film the hearing, which will focus on EPA’s investigation of potential natural gas contamination in Pavillion, Wyo.
“I’m within my First Amendment rights, and I’m being taken out,” Fox shouted as he was led away.

[I]t would be a great thing to do but because the Senate is controlled by Democrats we would never be able to get the Senate first to take up that action, because they simply don’t care what the American public thinks. They would protect him and they wouldn’t even bring it up,”
Herman Cain said, citing the administration’s position on the Defense of Marriage Act as an impeachable offense.
