Moments before the Federal Communications Commission was set to vote on pulling back net neutrality regulations, Chairman Ajit Pai said the room had to take a “brief recess” on “advice of security.”

Attendees were evacuated without grabbing their belongings. After about 10 minutes, the vote resumed, with Pai picking up his closing remarks.
