Police say a drunk Minnesota man broke into the Wisconsin Capitol building and was later found passed out on the roof.

Andrew Bishop, 21, smashed a window to get into the building in Madison on Sunday night, The Associated Press reported.

He then smashed another window by throwing a fire extinguisher through it, the Wisconsin Department of Administration said.

Although Bishop was ultimately apologetic, he was arrested and now faces charges of felony criminal damage and entry into a locked building.

His initial court appearance is next week.
