Sam Brinton, the radical Joe Biden appointee to America's nuclear regulatory agency who previously was arrested for stealing women's luggage at airports, now has been handcuffed for being a fugitive from justice.
The New York Post said Brinton, 35, was taken into custody at a home in Rockville, Maryland, late Wednesday.
The police agency involved was the Montgomery County Police.
He had been fired from his appointment to the U.S. Energy Department, where he was deputy assistant secretary for spent fuel and waste disposition when the luggage cases arose.
The report said arrest records confirmed Brinton, who has chosen a "non-binary" identity for himself and wants people to address him as "they," was listed as a fugitive from justice.
A police statement said, "They are being held at the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit on a no-bond status as they await an extradition hearing."
The report said the investigation was being led by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.
The Daily Wire reported someone claiming to be a neighbor reported "four unmarked police showed up" at the home last night and took Brinton away in handcuffs.
Brinton just weeks ago pleaded no contest to charges he stole a woman's luggage at the Las Vegas’ Harry Reid International Airport in July 2022. He was ordered to pay the woman back and serve a 180-day suspended jail sentence.
He also had agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation for an incident where similar luggage theft charges arose following an incident at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
Fox News reported that Tanzanian fashion designer Asya Idarous Khamsin and her husband Khamsin Alkhag talked about how Brinton allegedly took Asya's luggage and then wore her clothes on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
He also was a member of a drag queen society called "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence" and called himself, in that role, "Sister Ray Dee O'Active."
