The armed California man who was arrested outside of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's Maryland home in June following the leaked draft opinion confirming the overturn of Roe v. Wade identifies as a transgender woman, according to court filings.

According to court filings, Nicholas John Roske, 26, goes by "Sophie" on Reddit, and is identified as "MtF," or male-to-female. In posts he made under the username "AmericanNick," Roske introduced himself with the feminine name and talked about gaming, watching television, and wanting a female partner to cuddle with.

Discord messages between Roske and another unidentified person were also revealed in the affidavit, uncovering his original plan to shoot three justices to "change the votes for decades to come."

Roske, who has pleaded "not guilty" to attempting to kill or kidnap a U.S. judge, failed to physically harm anyone as when he arrived by cab at Kavanaugh's Chevy Chase home at 1:05 am, he called 911 on himself, telling the operator he was having "suicidal thoughts," and wanted to kill the justice, upon seeing deputy U.S. Marshals stationed outside of his residence. The Montgomery County Police Department arrived on the scene and took Roske into custody before he could carry out the crime, the New York Post reported.

According to prosecutors, when investigators searched Roske's suitcase and a backpack that he was carrying, they found a tactical police vest, a tactical knife, pepper spray, zip ties, a Glock 17 pistol, and two magazines and ammunition. They also found an array of burglary tools, including a hammer, a screwdriver, a nail punch, a crowbar, a pistol light, duct tape, and a pair of hiking boots with padding on the outside of the soles, among other items.
