A process server for Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) has had a warrant out for his arrest since Tuesday after he entered the home of Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) to serve court papers related to a lawsuit by Swalwell against Brooks.
The lawsuit seeks to hold Brooks culpable for the January 6 riot, and Swalwell’s attorneys were reportedly finding it difficult to serve the papers so that the lawsuit could proceed.
“My wife, Martha, was scared to death when she discovered a stranger in our home hovering over her like a hawk!” Brooks wrote about the incident. “Fortunately, the fright soon turned into anger and Martha chased Swalwell’s teammate out of our house like a stray, scalded dog. You don’t mess with Martha! I am proud as can be to have her as my wife!”
Christian Seklecki was charged with criminal tresspass for entering Brooks’ home, which could carry up to a year in jail and up to a $6,000 fine, Brooks pointed out in a tweet.
“Mo and I take our security very seriously, as do all families,” Martha Brooks said, adding that she hopes Seklecki will “think twice” before going into someone else’s home illegally.
