Man Arrested After Incident Near Residence of Justice Brett Kavanugh, Governor Hogan Releases Statement

According to Montgomery County Police, at 1:42 a.m. MCPD responded to a call for service in the area of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home in Chevy Chase. An adult male from California was taken into custody and transported to a Montgomery County police station.  The case was then transferred to the FBI. The Washington Post reports that the man was angry over the recently leaked Supreme Court draft decision that would overturn Roe V. Wade.

The suspect is described as being in his mid-20s, and according to the WaPo article was taken into custody by police “after telling officers he wanted to kill the justice” and that “he apparently did not make it onto Kavanaugh’s property in Montgomery County but was stopped on a nearby street and was found to be carrying a gun, a knife and burglary tools, these people said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.”

Per the State of Maryland:
Governor Larry Hogan today issued the following statement:
“Early this morning, I was briefed on an incident that occurred near the residence of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and his family. I want to thank the US Marshals Service and Montgomery County Police for acting quickly to apprehend the suspect and prevent him from causing any harm. Maryland State Police and the Maryland Coordination and Analysis Center are providing assistance with the investigation.

“The heightened security at the homes of the justices began after a request Governor Youngkin and I made to Attorney General Garland last month. We will continue to partner with both federal and local law enforcement officials to help ensure these residential areas are secure.

“I call on leaders in both parties in Washington to strongly condemn these actions in no uncertain terms. It is vital to our constitutional system that the justices be able to carry out their duties without fear of violence against them and their families.”
