Christian Adams has the arrest order at Rule of Law, Stacy McCain has some of the details at his blog.

Aaron Walker, whose complaint against convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin became a conservative cause célèbrethis past week, was reportedly taken into custody today after a court hearing in Rockville, Maryland.

One person who attended the hearing in Montgomery County District Court said that Kimberlin asserted that Walker’s continued blogging represented a violation of a “peace order” Kimberlin had obtained against the Virginia attorney, who says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him for assault earlier this year.

During the course of the hearing — which reportedly lasted about an hour — Judge C.J. Vaughey appeared to become increasingly hostile toward Walker, who was taken into custody when the hearing concluded.

Update: From the order–

Huh?

Update: Here is an eye witness account of the hearing. Walker seems to have been cited for contempt, for interrupting the judge a time or two too often. It sounds like Judge Vaughey doesn’t understand the Internet or Google alerts well enough to be able to have an informed opinion of Kimberlin’s allegations of harassment. We should learn more about all this in a couple of hours, according to Ali Akbar of the National Bloggers Club.

Update: “Severed”?

Update: Hmmmm.

Case No 5D00279004

Warrant issued on May 27,2012 for Failure To Obey a Peace Order

Pretty clear what happened. Kimberlin knows how these things work. Filing a complaint for violation of a peace order cause a warrant to be issued with virtually no review, a rubber stamp process. Kimberlin apparently initiated that process to get a warrant issued at the last minute, so no one would know. No doubt he informed the sheriff that Walker would be in court.

Walker’s detention will be reviewed shortly by a commissioner. He should be released thereafter, assuming the commissioner in not another retired dementia case sitting for a competent person.
