The office of embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., called Capitol Police on CBS 2 reporter Marcia Kramer on Thursday after she had dropped by with a camera crew to ask for an interview in Washington, D.C.

Kramer and crew were ignored for a few minutes until press secretary David Arnold showed up to defend Weiner’s reluctance to talk, saying he had spoken to the press for nine hours the day before.

Capitol Police officers were waiting for them when they reached the lobby on their way out of the building. Footage shows officers checking the identification of Kramer and her colleagues, and explaining to Kramer that she could be arrested if she refused to leave a state office.

“But I wasn’t refusing to leave,” Kramer told him.

A CBS blog sums up the experience: “Kramer was never asked to leave Weiner’s office, but the fact that the cops were called is a clear sign that the stress of this so-called “Weinergate” controversy is taking its toll.”

Weiner has been under the microscope since a photo purportedly of his crotch was sent to a 22-year-old Seattle college student via his Twitter account, which he maintains was done by someone who hacked his account.
