On Tuesday, a transgender activist was arrested inside the Oklahoma State Capitol after the protestor allegedly hurled water at a Republican state representative and an Oklahoma State Trooper, and allegedly assaulted the trooper. 

The arrest came after the state’s House voted 80-18 to pass HB 2177, which bans healthcare professionals from prescribing puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones and performing sex changes on minors. The bill now heads to the Senate.
