“The man refused to talk, made a statement to the effect of ‘time for talking is done,'” Bell said.

Capitol Police said on Twitter shortly before 10am (local time) for people to stay away from the area.

“We are investigating a suspicious vehicle in front of the Supreme Court along First Street, NE,” they said on Twitter.

“Please stay away from the area.”

The Police then took the man from the vehicle and arrested him. The suspect has been arrested on suspicion of failure to obey and assault on a police officer.

55-year-old Dale Paul Melvin previously came to the US Capitol in August and “made concerning comments”.
