Kevin J. Long has a penchant for trying to sneak knives into the Cook County courthouse.

So a judge has barred him from all Cook County courthouses unless he has to be in court, the Chicago Tribune reports. Even then he needs to check in with security and be escorted.  

The man who was arrested for trying to sneak four hunting knives into the Daley Center, and whose house contained a cache of weapons that would make the A-Team jealous, is being held in lieu of $1 million bail and has been barred from contacting witnesses.

Long has a history of intimidating witness and was considered a potential threat to judges and other court personnel even before sheriff’s officers raided his home and found 1600 knives, several handguns and threatening notes.

Assistant States Attorney Erin Antonietti said that long was convicted of threatening a 9-year-old girl over the phone because she was the daughter of a police officer who was slated to testify against him for indecent exposure.

Long apparently is an educated character. He completed law school and medical school, Antonietti said.
