The Daily Wire reports that “openly genderfluid” Sam Brinton, the MIT grad who served the Biden administration in a key nuclear role before being fired, was reportedly arrested Wednesday as a “fugitive of justice.”
Montgomery County, Maryland, enforcement officers took Brinton into custody at his home. A neighbor told the Daily Wire “four unmarked police showed up last night, they would not let his spouse Kevin leave. After about an hour Sam Brinton was escorted out in handcuffs.”
The arrest comes six months after Brinton was fired for stealing women’s clothes in airports. The former senior Department of Energy official was caught on camera stealing luggage last year and was ordered to pay $3,670 in restitution to the victim. He was spared jail time on that charge after pleading no contest.
He is currently in jail and being held without bond, set to appear for a hearing before Judge Victor Del Pino on Thursday afternoon.
