Brett Kavanaugh’s suspected assassin Nicholas Roske called the police for psychiatric help

The man who was stalking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and allegedly conspired to kill him, told a 911 dispatcher shortly after arriving outside the judge’s home that he needed “psychiatric help,” according to the newly released audio of the call.

Nicholas Roske, 26, of Simi Valley, Calif., expressed his need for medical attention after showing up with a cache of weapons at Kavanaugh’s Maryland home Wednesday morning, according to Fox News.

At the last minute, Roske had doubts about the alleged assassination mission and called 911.

“Are you thinking of hurting anyone, including yourself?” the operator reportedly asked.

“Yes,” Roske replied before telling the operator he had access to guns and was sober.

When asked if he needed medical help, Roske reportedly replied, “I need psychiatric help.”

Federal prosecutors had previously revealed that during the call, Roske said he was “suicidal” and “traveled from California to Maryland to kill a certain Supreme Court Justice.”

The would-be assassin went on to say he pulled his suitcase containing a Glock 17 pistol, ammunition, a knife, tactical gear, pepper spray, zip ties, a hammer, a screwdriver and duct tape away from him and was sitting on it with police officers waiting at the side of the road, according to the full audio exchange.

“I want to be fully compliant, so I will do whatever they ask of me,” Roske said, according to the outlet.

As the lengthy confession call continued, the suspect reportedly admitted that he found Kavanaugh’s address by matching an article containing a photo of his home with other sources.

He also said he had been hospitalized before and said he did when asked by the operator if he intended to “hurt him or herself,” the article said.

The operator kept Roske on the phone until the police showed up. He was charged with attempting or threatening to kidnap or murder a federal judge.

Roske later told police he was upset by leaked documents showing the Supreme Court ruled Roe v. Wade would overthrow, and also believed that the Republican judiciary would relax gun laws after the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre.

If convicted, Roske faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
