Los Angeles police officers arrested an armed man Sunday morning at an event organised by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that raised money for a ballot measure in California.
The man, who was not identified, was taken into custody at the Bohemian Grove in the Silver Lake area without incident, police told the Los Angeles Times.
The event was to raise funds for a ballot measure that would expand access to clean drinking water. RFK Jr. is leading an effort to get it passed.
“We are grateful to the Los Angeles Police Department for responding so quickly and professionally to an individual who wrongfully tried to disrupt the event,” a spokesman for the charity said in a statement. “We have faith in the police and, together, we will continue to support the fight for clean drinking water for all Californians.”
No one was injured in the incident, and it’s unclear if the individual was ever a threat. It’s also unknown if he was associated with the event or if he was just a passerby.
