During a news conference, Capitol Deputy Chief of Police Jason Bell said Melvin drove his truck near the Supreme Court building and parked illegally. When officers approached, Bell said, Melvin “made a statement to the effect of, ‘Time to talk is up.'”

Tuesday was the second time in two months that parts of the Capitol complex were closed due to a suspicious vehicle. In August, a North Carolina man, Floyd Ray Roseberry, was broadcast live for hours parked outside the Library of Congress in what he described as a van loaded with bombs. Capitol Police used a robot to bring Roseberry a phone for business, though he refused to use it, eventually managing to get him out of the vehicle as well. Investigators later determined that the truck did not contain an actual bomb, but did contain “possible materials for making bombs.”
Roseberry was charged with threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction and threatening to use an explosive device, and potentially faces living in prison if he is convicted. He was scheduled to appear in DC District Court Tuesday afternoon for a status hearing.
