The sought-after suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was arrested Friday night — taken from a boat parked on a trailer behind a house in the suburban town of Watertown, police said.
Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, was taken into custody without incident about 8:45 p.m., said Massachusetts State Police Col. Timothy Alben.
“We have a suspect in custody,” Alben said at a 9:30 p.m. news conference. “We’re exhausted, folks, but we have a victory tonight.”
Tsarnaev, a Chechen native who became a naturalized U.S. citizen last year on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, was covered with blood when he was arrested, he said.
He was found on the stern end, or back, of the boat, leaning over, Alben said.
The teen was taken to a local hospital, where he remained in “extremely serious” condition, The Boston Globe reports.
“Suspect in custody. Officers sweeping the area,” Boston Police said on Twitter at 8:45 p.m.
“We Got Him,” tweeted Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

Yesterday the Senate mail facility discovered a letter addressed to Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi that was laced with a suspicious white powder. Preliminary tests somewhat inconclusively suggested the powder included ricin, a toxic substance made from castor beans. According to the Centers for Disease Control, ricin can cause injury or death in very small amounts, through either inhalation, ingestion, or skin contact. This makes it an attractive chemical-biological warfare option for the evil scumbag on a budget.

Late Sunday evening, in the aftermath of reports that House Republican leadership was considering passage of bills on major issues like gun control and immigration without a majority of House Republicans in support, Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy reached out to Breitbart News to clarify his position: House leadership should not pursue legislation without a majority of House GOP support.
“This morning on CNN I told Candy Crowley that the House should craft our own legislation through regular order,” McCarthy said. “Additionally I believe that legislation should have the support of a majority of the majority. Reports to the contrary do not accurately represent my position.
“We face serious challenges as a country, and the President and Harry Reid have refused to lead. House Republicans have, and we will continue to do so.”
This is a welcome signal from McCarthy that the voices of conservatives will be heard in the legislative process by the House leadership– a matter that remains in controversy since the fiscal cliff negotiations and the failed House rebellion against Rep. John Boehner’s speakership.

NEW YORK – It’s been a bad week for A&E.
First, Dave Hester sued the network, claiming “Storage Wars” was staged. Now the network’s History Channel division has its own lawsuit brewing over its hit show “Pawn Stars.”
A talent agency has filed a lawsuit against The History Channel, TMZ reported, claiming they signed on to represent the cast of “Pawn Stars” back in 2007 and 2009 and were terminated after the show hit the air.
The agency, Venture IAB, claims they were representing Corey Harrison, Rick Harrison, Richard Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell before the stars made it big. The agency alleges six months after the show hit the air, two “Pawn Star” executives convinced the cast to end their deal with Venture.
According to court documents, posted on The Hollywood Reporter’s website, History Channel Vice President Mary Donahue and General Manager Nancy Dubuc “intentionally interfered with the Agency Agreements by inducing the Harrisons, Golden State Pawn Stars, and Russell to terminate the [Venture IAB] agreement.”
This resulted in the loss of millions of dollars in income, the talent agency claims.
