Long has been arrested 18 times since 2000 for a range of offenses, including being caught in a judge's chambers and public indecency. His name is also on a list developed by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Cook County sheriff's department as a potential threat to judges or court officials after he served 15 months in jail for telling a witness during a civil court case that he would kill the witness's child. This new raid has resulted in "dozens" of additional charges against Long, who was already charged with unlawful use of a weapon and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon for last week's Daley Center incident. In that incident, Long claimed his briefcase held "just papers." We'd love to hear his excuse for all those knives he had stored away; going on a walkabout with John Locke?
