U.S. Capitol Police Blew Up Suspicious Vehicle In Front Of Supreme Court

Support SouthFront

A suspicious car was detected in front of the U.S. Supreme Court on October 5th, where the U.S. nine justices began their new term with hearing the first oral arguments in person.

A law enforcement team pulled a man from a smoke-filled SUV. The suspect was identified as Dale Paul Melvin, 55. About 9:30 a.m. Melvin parked illegally in front of the Supreme Court and refused to talk to officers.

U.S. Capitol Police reportedly conducted a controlled explosion of the vehicle as smoke was seen over the scene.

According to the local police department, the incident is being investigated. People were asked not to come close to this place.

“We are investigating a suspicious vehicle in front of the Supreme Court along First Street, NE,” the department said in a Twitter statement. “Please stay away from the area. We will provide more information as soon as we can.”

A day earlier, the nine justices began their new term, coming back to the office after a nearly 19-month absence because of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is not the first incident near the U.S. Capitol to take place in the last months.

In August, a man claimed to have a bomb in a pickup truck near the U.S. Capitol. He surrendered to police after hours-long standoff.
