RALEIGH — Authorities say a man slipped into the State Capitol through a broken window and vandalized a Christmas tree and a water fountain.

Ernie Seneca, a spokesman for the state Department of Crime Control and Public Safety, said Sunday in a news release that 35-year-old Douglas Webster McClary was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of breaking and entering.

Seneca says McClary was trying to get into the governor’s press office when officers found him in the capitol around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

McClary is also charged with damage to real property and damage to personal property.

He was treated for minor injuries after the break-in and taken to the Wake County Jail in Raleigh. State Capitol Police are still investigating.
