An apparent supporter of former president Donald Trump was arrested Tuesday after Capitol police used a flash-bang to extract him from a suspicious vehicle parked in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

"This morning at about 9:30 a.m., a man pulled his SUV up in front of the Supreme Court," Deputy Chief Jason Bell said during a news conference, according to Law & Crime. "It was illegally parked. Our officers immediately responded. The man refused to talk, made a statement to the effect of, 'The time for talking is done.'"

The suspect was identified as Dale Paul Melvin, 55, of Kimball, Michigan. According to Law & Crime, "Court records from St. Clair County, which includes that town, show several alleged traffic violations and one domestic violence case under that name."

The Daily Mail notes that, "A glance at Melvin's Facebook page reveals several posts indicating that he is a supporter of former President Donald Trump, and a critic of Democrats including former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton."

Melvin's arrest came on the same day as a court appearance for 49-year-old Floyd Ray Roseberry, who made bomb threats outside the Library of Congress in August after driving his pickup truck onto a sidewalk — before live-streaming tirades against President Joe Biden on Facebook.

Tuesday's incident occurred on the second day of the Supreme Court's new term, in which justices are set to consider divisive issues including abortion, the Second Amendment and religious liberty.
