Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan reacts to arrest of armed man near Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh's home in Chevy Chase

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) has commended U.S. marshals and Montgomery County police after they took an armed man into custody near the Chevy Chase home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh early this morning. The California man had allegedly threatened Kavanaugh, and was arrested after law enforcement spotted him near the justice's home at 1:50 AM this morning, ABC News reported

"The heightened security at [the homes of Kavanaugh and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts] began after a request [Virginia] Governor [Glenn] Youngkin and I made to Attorney General [Merrick] Garland last month," Hogan said in a statement. "We will continue to partner with both federal and local law enforcement officials to help ensure these residential areas are secure."
