A House Democrat from New York pulled the fire alarm in the Cannon office building at the Capitol to delay a vote on the latest continuing resolution.
According to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, Rep Jamaal Bowman was being questioned by the US Capitol Police criminal investigation unit:

A similar report from a Politico reporter:
NEWS: Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) was caught on camera pulling the Cannon fire alarm ahead of this motion to adjourn vote as Dems tried to delay the CR vote, multiple sources tell me.
We have reached out to him for comment – we haven't viewed footage ourselves.

If Bowman is willing to resort to crap like this, then they need to kick his butt out of Congress. I don’t know what the penalty is for this, legally speaking, but I hope they pin him to the wall for it.
