The man was described as being in his mid-20s and was carrying at least one weapon and burglary tools, the Post reports. Police were reportedly informed that this person might pose a threat to a Supreme Court justice before making the arrest. The suspect was taken into custody on a street nearby Kavanaugh’s home in Montgomery County.
According to the Post, the man was motivated to kill Kavanaugh because he was upset with the leaked draft of a majority opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that created a constitutional right to have an abortion. The man was also angry over recent mass shootings, the Post reported.
The man was arrested at around 1:50 a.m. Wednesday, Supreme Court spokeswoman Patricia McCabe said in a statement.
“The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh,” McCabe said. “He was transported to Montgomery County Police 2nd District.”
