Iowa Statehouse Employee Arrested


An employee who worked either as a page or secretary at the Iowa State Capitol is facing public intoxication and disorderly conduct charges. 

Authorities say 21-year-old Jessica Leeper was arrested Wednesday after becoming violent with troopers who responded to the Capitol.

It began when others say Leeper smelled of alcohol, which prompted House staff to call authorities. That led to what they say was Leeper kicking and screaming as police took her into custody.
