The Justice Department announced today that Ralph Lang, 63, Marshfield, Wis., was charged today in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Madison, Wis., with attempting to injure, intimidate and interfere with other persons because those persons were providing reproductive health services.

While loading his handgun, he discharged a bullet through the door of his hotel room into the room across the hall. Madison Police responded and Lang was arrested for reckless endangerment.
