Ventura County man formally indicted on allegation he threatened to kill Supreme Court justice.
Simi Valley man had gun, knife, burglary tools with him when he was arrested outside of the Maryland home of a Supreme Court justice.
The Ventura County man accused of threatening to kill a Supreme Court justice has been indicted for the incident.
Prosecutors say Nicholas John Roske showed up in a taxi near the Maryland home of Justice Brett Kavanaugh on June 8 with a gun, a knife, pepper spray and burglary tools.
After talking to his sister on the phone, the Simi Valley man called 9-1-1. The dispatcher kept him on the phone until he could be arrested by officers.
Investigators say he told them he planned to kill a justice because he was upset over potential anti-abortion votes by the court, as well as the possibility that the court could hamper gun control efforts. The single count indictment was issued by a federal grand jury Wednesday.
