Man arrested at state Capitol during special election hearing

- A man was arrested at a hearing on Monday involving the valley's voting problems during Arizona's Presidential Preference Election last week.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety tells Fox 10 that 23-year-old Jonathan McRae was arrested after he refused to leave the hearing when security asked him to leave because he was being disruptive.

Some witnesses at the hearing tell Fox 10 that McRae never said a word at the hearing and was seated when troopers took him into custody.

Many people were at the hearing to voice their concerns over last week's election, which saw extremely long lines at the polls. Some voters had to stand in line for hours just to cast their vote.

McRae has been charged with trespassing and resisting arrest.
