Armed Man Arrested Near Home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh

Many are sending thoughts and prayers

An armed man who made threats against Brett Kavanaugh was arrested early on Wednesday near the conservative U.S. Supreme Court justice's Maryland home, the site of protests by abortion-rights advocates in recent weeks, a court spokesperson said.

The man was arrested and transported to a police facility in Montgomery County in the Washington suburbs, court spokesperson Patricia McCabe said. McCabe did not identify the man.

Abortion-rights supporters have held protests outside Kavanaugh's home and those of at least two other justices and rallied outside the courthouse since the May 2 publication of a leaked draft ruling showing that the court's conservative majority was poised to overturn its landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
