A Pennsylvania man was arrested at President Donald Trump’s Washington hotel early on Wednesday after police found an assault rifle, a handgun and 90 rounds of ammunition in his car, authorities said.

Brian Moles, 43, of Edinboro, was taken into custody inside the Trump International Hotel a few blocks from the White House, the Metropolitan Police Department said in a charging document.

The Washington Post quoted police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck as saying that police had gotten a tip from an out-of-state law enforcement agency that said Moles “had made threatening remarks.” Sternbeck would not characterize the comments, the Post said.

The Secret Service issued a statement Wednesday morning saying they had received a tip about Moles from a “concerned citizen” as well as hotel staff. Officers reportedly found a “semi-automatic assault-style rifle and a handgun in the individual’s vehicle.”

Police had been told Moles had a Glock 23 pistol and a Carbon 15 Bushmaster rifle, the incident report said. Officers saw one of the guns in his car and found a second firearm in the glove compartment.

Moles also had 30 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition and 60 .223-caliber rounds, the report said. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possessing unregistered ammunition, the document said.

Police spokeswoman Karimah Bilal had no information about an attorney for Moles.

Trump’s hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, housed in a landmark former post office, has become a focal point for protests against the Republican president since he took office in January.

Edinboro Police Chief Jeff Craft said by telephone that Moles had no criminal record in the western Pennsylvania town and was not known to police.

In Israeli first, divorce refuser to face criminal prosecution – The Jerusalem Post

For the first time in Israel, a man who has refused to give his wife a divorce for 17 years now faces criminal charges after the Jerusalem Rabbinical Court decided to refer his case to the State Attorney’s Office.

Perhaps even more significantly for his wife, the rabbinical judges are now likely to start reviewing the husband’s medical and psychological history to check if he concealed psychological problems before they were married.

If they were to find sufficient grounds to determine that he had hidden such conditions, the marriage could be annulled on the basis of a precept in Jewish law which determines that had the spouse known about the hidden issue they would not have consented to marry in the first place.

Tzvia Gordetski, 53, was married to her husband for nine years and had four children with him before eventually requesting a divorce due to his violent behavior towards her.

In the year 2000, the Jerusalem Rabbinical Court ordered the husband to give a bill of divorce to his wife, issuing what is called a “divorce by compulsion” ruling.

The husband has, however, refused to grant the divorce, despite the fact that he was sent to prison by the court not long after the ruling and has sat there for almost 17 years.

Rabbinical court sanctions only come within the framework of civilian law, which in general allows for easier prison conditions than prisoners held under criminal law.

But in November last year, State Attorney Shai Nitzan published a new regulation allowing for the criminal prosecution of men or women who refuse to grant or accept a divorce after being instructed to do so by a rabbinical court in a “divorce by compulsion” ruling.

The full force of criminal sanctions will now be available against Gordetski’s husband, including a sentence which, if the husband is convicted, would leave him in prison even if he eventually gives a divorce.

Shay Zilberberg, a lawyer from the Rackman Center women’s rights group, explained that the threat of an even longer period of jail time might help convince him to give a divorce before he is criminally convicted.

Zilberberg said, however, that he did not believe that the husband, who he has encountered in the rabbinical court hearings, will ever voluntarily give a divorce, saying he is not in the right mental frame of mind to do so anymore.

It will also be difficult to further harden the husband’s prison conditions since most of his rights as a civilian prisoners have already been revoked.

Zilberberg added that it would be also difficult to prove that the husband had hidden psychological conditions before the two married given the length of time since the marriage and the fact that relevant medical documents may not be available or even exist.

He said, however, that the Jerusalem Rabbinical Court’s decision to request criminal proceedings against a divorce refuser was an important step in creating greater deterrence for other potential divorce refusers in the future.

The rabbinical judges were harshly critical of the husband, describing his behavior has “severe and ongoing abuse.”

The judges also issued a call to the Knesset to pass legislation allowing the implementation of a tool within Jewish law, whereby a rabbinical court can order that a divorce refuser be physically beaten until he agrees to grant a divorce.

Despite their call, it is highly unlikely that the Knesset would ever pass such legislation.
