Protestors Pepper Sprayed At Capitol

Michigan State Police say pepper spray has been used to subdue a protester outside the state Capitol who had his hands on a trooper.

Captain Harold Love says the female trooper was being pulled into a crowd Tuesday. Love says a male trooper standing nearby gave two short bursts of pepper spray to end the incident. There was no arrest.

Thousands of union supporters are at the Capitol protesting legislation that would make financial support of unions voluntary. The bills are expected to become law.

Love says two people were arrested when they tried to get into the George Romney Building, a state office building that was closed.
