MADISON (WKOW) -- An assistant Dane County district attorney says more time is needed to review videotapes before a decision is made whether to criminally charge a capitol protester, who was arrested on a tentative felony.
Video taken by onlookers shows Damon Terrel being taken to the ground by police officers during a sing-a-long protest last month.
In a probable cause affidavit, a Capitol Police officer says Terrell's resistance led to the officer being injured.
Assistant district attorney Jordan Lippert Thursday told a court commissioner more review is needed before there can be a decision if a charge would be lodged.
Terrell is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 23. His bail conditions prevent him from being at the state capitol.
The tentative felony battery to a police officer charge used to arrest Terrell was believed to be the most serious accusation lodged against a capitol protester since protests against Walker administration policies began in 2011.
