The man who was arrested for walking into the Capitol rotunda naked Monday afternoon was officially charged Wednesday.

State officials said a naked man found his way into the Wisconsin state Capitol’s rotunda Monday around 4 p.m.

The man, identified as Brian M. Ireland, 39, appeared undressed in the rotunda and began shouting at the top of his lungs.

A Capitol police officer quickly led him away.

Stephanie Marquis, spokeswoman for the state Department of Administration, said the man was screaming that he was Jesus Christ.

Ireland was charged Wednesday with disorderly conduct and lewd and lascivious behavior. He was released on a signature bond with the condition that he cannot be on the Capitol grounds.

He will be back in court Nov. 4.
