Multiple staffers of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert were arrested at the U.S. Capitol on Thursday night, according to Deadline. The staffers include multiple producers as well as Robert Smigel (The Week Of), who is the creator, puppeteer, and voice of Triumph The Insult Comic Dog, a popular puppet character who has appeared on many comedy shows.
The group of staffers were arrested at the Longworth House Office Building by U.S. Capitol Police and were charged with unlawful entry, according to Capitol Police. They were also escorted out of the January 6 committee hearing earlier in the day for lack of proper press credentials.
U.S. Capitol Police released a statement on the arrests.
