Capitol Police Stop Man Near SCOTUS with Weapons

It would appear as though the Capitol Police were able to halt an attack before it was ever able to be carried out. 

An 80-year-old Georgia man was found near the Supreme Court building in a van loaded for bear. 

When Capitol Police entered the van, he had two handguns and a shotgun.  

He told police that he had some "documents" that he wanted to drop off at the Supreme Court.  


The driver of the van, Tony H. Payne of Tunnel Hill, Georgia, 80, was taken into custody.  

Two other people were also in the van, a man and a woman, but they were not held.  

When police interviewed the group, they told them that they were "here to deliver documents to the U.S. Supreme Court." 

Exactly what those documents were have not been made clear.  

As noted above, while all three were initially held, the driver was the only one that was charged in the arrest.  

Capitol Police stated, "Weapons are banned from Capitol Grounds, yet dozens of people are arrested each year for violating the law." 

I tend to believe they were there with other intentions of just delivering documents to the Supreme Court.  

With Democrats whipping up so much rhetoric, we have been waiting for some lunatic to go after the justices by more than just protesting.  

I am thinking the justices were able to avoid quite the scare thanks to the Capitol Police.
