Dem Rep. Jamaal Bowman Questioned by Police After Pulling Fire Alarm at Capitol

Socialist Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) pulled the fire alarm in a House office building Saturday as Democrats tried to delay a vote on a Republican stopgap spending bill.

The wild incident in the Cannon Building was caught on camera and confirmed by several witnesses.

Committee Chair Bryan Steil, R-Wis., said the matter is being investigated now. Sources told Fox News and Fox News Digital that Bowman is being questioned by the Capitol Police’s criminal investigation unit.

“Rep. Jamal Bowman pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning. An investigation into why it was pulled is underway,” Steil said in a statement.

Bowman “pulled a fire alarm in Cannon this morning,” a spokesperson for the GOP-controlled Administration Committee told Politico. “An investigation into why it was pulled is underway.”

Bowman’s spokeswoman Emma Simon admitted her boss made a mistake.

“Congressman Bowman did not realize he would trigger a building alarm as he was rushing to make an urgent vote. The congressman regrets any confusion,” she said.

Staten Island GOP Rep. Nicole Malliotakis’ office told The Post she would move to have Bowman expelled from the chamber.

“NY Democrat Jamaal Bowman literally pulled a fire alarm to stall and prevent our efforts to force a vote to keep the federal government open. Pathetic. Criminal investigation needs to happen,” said upstate GOP Congressman Nick Langworthy.

Creating a false fire alarm is a misdemeanor in the District of Columbia and punishable by up to six months in jail.

“This is the United States Congress, not a New York City high school. To pull the fire alarm to disrupt proceedings when we are trying to draft legislation to AVERT A SHUTDOWN is pathetic…even for members of the socialist squad,” Malliotakis wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

    Man, I can not believe some of these comments. This article was about a grown man pulling a fire alarm without considering that someone could be injured or even killed while trying to get out of the building. People, your comments are irrelevant if they do not address the topic. Grow up!!! Should this grown man be charged for willfully disobeying a public safety law. or npt??? Stip malong comments on everything else. My 80 year-old disabled Vietnam vet vote is for his recall. Adults do not act this way and I have not let a child tell me what to do for over 75 years.
