Police have arrested a man after he was seen taking a photograph of Secretary of State John Kerry's home in Boston.
Authorities found a pellet gun in the man's car parked near the house and arrested the man on Sunday for having an open container of alcohol, Kerry spokesman Glen Johnson said in a statement.
Kerry was not at home at the time. State Department security officers called police after the man was spotted taking a picture of a window in Kerry's house, Johnson said.
Kerry was in Boston visiting his wife, philanthropist and heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry, at a hospital where she is recovering after a seizure.
