US police arrested an armed man who made threats against Brett Kavanaugh near the conservative Supreme Court justice’s home, the top US court says.

“At approximately 1:50 AM today, a man was arrested near Justice Kavanaugh’s residence. The man was armed and made threats against Justice Kavanaugh,” the court says in a statement.

The arrest comes as the court prepares to release potentially landmark judgments on two politically charged cases on gun rights and abortion.
