Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider confirmed the arrest, but did not have a name for the man, who was being processed at Capitol Police headquarters.
Demonstrators affiliated with the Occupy Wall Street are camped out at the West Front Lawn of the Capitol for what they call a “day of action against a corrupt political institution.” The group also plans to march later to the Supreme Court and the White House.
Earlier Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) offered some advice to the protesters during POLITICO’s Playbook Breakfast interview.
