Man Arrested Outside John Kerry's Beacon Hill Home

A man arrested outside U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's Boston home with what police say was a pellet gun in his car is being held on unrelated charges.

State Department security officers spotted the man parked in a no-parking zone Sunday afternoon and called police.

Police say the man, 29-year-old Vladimir Romanov of Boston, told security officers he was taking pictures to show a friend. When asked to move his vehicle, he said he'd been drinking.

Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson says the man was taking pictures of a window in Kerry's house. Kerry, a former U.S. senator from Massachusetts, was not home.

Romanov was arraigned Monday. A municipal court judge revoked Romanov's bail on an unrelated assault charge and ordered him held for allegedly violating probation on an earlier drunken driving case.
