WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says an armed man who made threats against Justice Brett Kavanaugh was arrested near the justice’s house in Maryland. A court spokeswoman says the man was arrested about 1:50 a.m. Wednesday. According to a law enforcement official, the man is from California, is in his 20s, and was armed with a gun and a knife. The official says the man, whose identity hasn’t been released, arrived in a taxi early in the morning and told law enforcement officers he wanted to kill Kavanaugh. The justices have been provided round-the-clock security at their homes amid concerns about violence as the court readies to issue an important ruling on abortion.
