House Speaker Kevin McCarthy calls for punishment of Rep. Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., after he pulled a fire alarm in a Capitol office building.

McCarthy compares Bowman's actions to the Jan 6 rioters who attacked the Capitol building.

McCarthy emphasizes that the Ethics Committee should take the incident seriously.

McCarthy expresses that the incident should not go unpunished, calling it an embarrassment.

Bowman releases a statement, claiming that the fire alarm activation was unintentional and occurred while rushing to make a vote.

Bowman apologizes for any confusion caused by the incident and clarifies that he was trying to get to a vote urgently.

Security footage is distributed to officers to identify the person who pulled the fire alarm.  Democratic Leader Rep. Hakeem Jeffries refrains from commenting until he sees the video evidence.

U.S. Capitol Police launch an investigation into the incident without mentioning Bowman by name.

The House Administration Committee also conducts a probe into the incident, led by committee Chairman Bryan Steil, R-Wis.

Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican, announces her intention to introduce a resolution to expel Bowman from the House.

The fire alarm incident occurs in the Cannon office building during a vote on a 45-day spending measure, leading to a delay in starting the vote, which ultimately passes with overwhelming Democratic support.
