A Supreme Court spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday that an armed man was arrested after threatening Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.
“At approximately 1:50 a.m. today, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s residence,” the court’s public information officer, Patricia McCabe, said in a statement. “The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh. He was transported to Montgomery County Police 2nd District.”
The Washington Post reported sources as saying that the man, appearing to be in his mid-20s, is from California and told police that he wanted to kill Kavanaugh.
Those anonymous sources also told the Post that he was carrying at least one weapon. He also carried “burglary tools,” they told the Post.
