Man arrested outside Kerry's Boston home; police say he had alcohol, was seen taking photos

A man arrested outside Secretary of State John Kerry's Boston home over the weekend is headed to court.

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 issued a statement saying the man was taking pictures of a window in Kerry's house. He says a pellet gun was found in the vehicle.

Kerry, a former U.S. senator from Massachusetts, was not home.

Prosecutors say Romanov is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on a charge of having an open container of alcohol. The district attorney's office says no lawyer is listed for him.
