(WASHINGTON TIMES) A controversial Internet talk show host was arrested at his home in Herndon on Tuesday night after a videotaped July 4 stunt in which he loaded a shotgun in the District’s Freedom Plaza — a violation of the city’s gun laws.
Information about the arrest of Adam Kokesh was posted on his blog late Tuesday night. The Herndon Police Department confirmed Wednesday that Mr. Kokesh was arrested on a federal warrant but could not provide information about the nature of the charges.
Online court records in Virginia indicate he was charged with one felony count of possessing a gun with drugs present and one felony count of possessing drugs, reportedly hallucinogenic mushrooms. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Oct. 2.
