The United States Capitol Police has already taken significant steps to implement the recommendations detailed in the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) third flash report on counter-surveillance and threat assessments.
Last night at approximately 8:20 p.m., a man identified as John Liebsch (DOB: 02/04/1984) was arrested after throwing rocks at the Russell Senate Office Building.
Multiple officers initiated contact with the suspect, who was non-compliant and very combative.
