    Cops tackle lawmaker amid layoff threats, detention order: Tensions still running high in Wisconsin

    By fleeing the state last month, Wisconsin Democrats succeeded in stymieing--for now--GOP Gov. Scott Walker's controversial bid to end [COLOR=#366388 !important][COLOR=#366388 !important]collective [COLOR=#366388 !important]bargaining [/COLOR][COLOR=#366388 !important]rights[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] for many public-sector workers. But that doesn't mean things are settling back to normal in the Badger State--in fact, tensions over the standoff are running higher than ever.
    Last night, one Democratic lawmaker, Rep. Nick Milroy, was physically tackled by Capitol police when he tried to enter the building to retrieve some clothes after meeting with constituents outside. In response to the enormous protests from union supporters, state officials have been allowing only a limited number of people into the Capitol this week, despite a judge's order saying it must remain open to the public. You can watch raw footage of the incident from the local ABC affiliate after the jump.
