WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Ethics Committee has determined it will take no further action involving the arrest of Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (goo-tee-AYR’-ehz) of Illinois during an immigration-related protest outside the White House last month.

The committee says Gutierrez paid a $50 fine and was released following his arrest for unlawful assembly. At the time, Gutierrez was showing support for a program that gives young immigrants protection from deportation and the ability to work and go to school.

Whenever a member of the House is indicted or formally charged with criminal conduct the committee must either initiate an inquiry or state why it will not.
