"My God, people have a right to gather in their own state Capitol," Jauch said. "This is an overreach. It's excessive. It's unnecessary. By God, this isn't the Wisconsin I live in."

DOA didn't immediately release the exact number of arrests.

ACLU attorney Larry Dupuis said an email to The Associated Press that he was disappointed police chose to arrest the singers.

"It's my understanding that those arrested today were not disruptive or disorderly," Dupuis said. "The only reason for their arrest was because there were more than twenty of them and they didn't have a permit."
