A California man armed with a handgun, a knife, and “burglary supplies” was arrested in the middle of the night near the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
The Supreme Court said in a statement: “At approximately 1:50 a.m. today, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s residence. The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh.”
News reports imply that the man was upset about the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned.
The Washington Post writes, “Two people familiar with the investigation said the initial evidence indicates that the man was angry about the leaked draft of an opinion by the Supreme Court signaling that the court is preparing to overturn Roe. v. Wade.”
He apparently arrived near Kavanaugh’s home in a taxi and was stopped by police near the Justice’s home, allegedly admitting he was there to kill Kavanaugh.
Maryland Governor Larry Hogan in a statement said that both the U.S. Marshals Service and Montgomery County Police acted quickly.
