“A man armed with a loaded pistol was arrested Friday at Robert F. Kennedy Jr. presidential campaign event after he was caught posing as a U.S. Marshal. Kennedy, the 69-year-old son of late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was scheduled to give a speech to honor Hispanic Heritage Month at Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles at the time of the incident, his campaign said in a statement. The man, who was not identified by Kennedy’s team, presented himself at the side entrance to the theater and claimed to be a part of Kennedy’s security team. He said he needed to be taken to Kennedy immediately. He was identified in jail records reviewed by UPI as 44-year-old Adrian Aispuro and his bail has been set at $35,000. … Kennedy’s actual security team removed him from the area and surrounded him before notifying the Los Angeles Police Department.” (09/16/23)
