The DOJ Eastern District of Virginia published a statement.
NORFOLK, Va. – A Virginia Beach man was arrested today on charges of threatening to murder and assault a member of Congress.
According to court documents, Wallace Grove Godwin, 69, visited the Virginia Beach Office of Congressman Scott Taylor yesterday. After apparently becoming frustrated during a discussion about marijuana policy, Godwin made the following statement to a staff member for the Congressman: “Scott is having an event this Saturday. I am going to get my shotgun and do something about this. I will just handle this myself.” Godwin then pointed at two staffers in the room and stated, “You two are next.”
According to court documents, these recent threats follow two aggressive interactions that Godwin had in 2017, one in which Godwin visited Congressman Taylor’s private residence and interacted directly with Congressman Taylor outside his home. During another incident Godwin visited the Virginia Beach office and yelled at congressional staff members.
Godwin is scheduled to make his initial appearance today at the federal courthouse in Norfolk at 2:30 p.m.
