Man With Gun Arrested Near Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Home; Told Police He Was There to Kill Kavanaugh

A California man was arrested overnight near the Maryland home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The man reportedly told police he was there to kill Kavanaugh. After the story broke, the Supreme Court issued a statement confirming the incident.

Kavanaugh has been targeted by protesters at his home since the leak of a draft opinion overturning Roe v. Wade.

New York Post columnist Karol Markowicz posted to Twitter, “Breaking: A man was arrested outside of Brett Kavanaugh’s residence around 1:45am last night. The man had a gun and said he was there to kill Kavanaugh. He was taken into custody without incident…I can confirm the man taken into custody outside of Brett Kavanaugh’s house last night is a 26 year old white male with a California driver’s license. Previous address in Seattle…I got it direct from a source but should be out soon.”

The Washington Post also reported on the arrest:

UPDATE: NBC News reports the man had a gun, knife and pepper spray–and took a taxi to Kavanaugh’s neighborhood, “Multiple law enforcement officials say that a man was arrested overnight near the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, per @PeteWilliamsNBC. The man reportedly had a gun, a knife and pepper spray and told authorities he was there to kill Kavanaugh.”

Statement by the Supreme Court:

“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. He was transported to Montgomery County Police 2nd District.”

More: CBS News reports a 911 call came in around 1:15 a.m. of a suspicious man near Kavanaugh’s home, “Police got a 911 call at 1:15am about a suspicious man near the home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh in Maryland.
