Outburst in gallery interrupts speech

During a speech from Rep. Paul Tittl, R-Manitowoc, a man stood up and started yelling from the gallery.

When Tittl, describing a time at which presidents of manufacturing companies would set down to eat with local police and firefighters, he posed the question of what they had in common.

At that point, a man from the audience stood up and answered that question with a different answer. The man was removed from the gallery after shouting some more, pointing toward the person to his right and saying something about how it was a good thing he didn't have a knife on him and then yelling to the audience that he is just trying to make the world a better place. Much of his yelling was indistinguishable, including one mention about "the Palo Alto of Wisconsin."

"I'm not a criminal," the man shouted as he was taken away.

"You are now," responded Speaker Pro Tem Bill Kramer.
