MADISON (WSAU)   A 20-year-old Milwaukee man is facing possible charges, after he entered the State Capitol yesterday with a backpack in which he claimed to have a Molotov cocktail. Capitol Police arrested Kvon Smith, after they learned that he posted a video on his Facebook page which said he would go the Capitol and do harm.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis said police and state troopers were posted at all entrances, and Capitol officers immediately identified Smith as he walked in. He was apprehended in the Rotunda after telling officers he was carrying a Molotov cocktail. A bomb squad later checked the backpack. Officials did not confirm that Smith had anything dangerous, but a Madison T-V crew saw bottles being removed from the backpack. Marquis said Smith did not threaten anyone in particular – and there was no indication that he knew about Governor Scott Walker’s State-of-the-State address last night, in which lawmakers and all top state officials gathered in one place in the Assembly chamber.

In mid-December, Smith was arrested for resisting an officer during an incident at Madison’s West Towne shopping mall. And he was charged with injuring an officer and disorderly conduct upon being released from jail. Those cases are still pending. Smith also filed a federal lawsuit the day after Christmas, alleging that several state agencies conspired to commit bankruptcy and violated his civil rights – including the Wisconsin Badger football team.
