A court filing says cameras recorded Dammeron Valley resident Brady Knowlton telling officers to move out of the way as they left the Senate Gallery.

Knowlton is quoted as telling the officers, “we don’t wanna push through here,” and, “this is happening. Our vote doesn’t matter, so we came here for a change.”
