Virginia — Gun rights activist Adam Kokesh, who was shown in a video illegally loading a shotgun in downtown Washington on July 4th in a self-described act of civil disobedience, has been arrested at his Virginia home on state drug and weapons charges.

The 31-year-old Kokesh, who was held overnight in an adult detention center, refused to leave his cell for his arraignment on Monday, WUSA-TV reported.

U.S. Park Police Lt. Pamela Smith tells USA TODAY that the agency executed a search warrant at Kokesh's home and arrested him on state weapons and drug charges.
