Chief Justice John Roberts Was Hospitalized for Head Injury

Chief Justice John Roberts suffered a head injury after a fall last month.

On Tuesday, Supreme Court spokesperson Kathleen Arberg confirmed to The Washington Post that Roberts, 65, fell while exercise-walking at a country club in Maryland on Sunday, June 21, and was hospitalized for one night. He was treated with sutures, according to the news outlet, and discharged the following morning.

The health scare was revealed after the Post received a tip from a witness who claimed to have seen Roberts bleeding from the head during the incident at the club.

“The chief justice was treated at a local hospital on June 21 for an injury to his forehead sustained in a fall while walking for exercise near his home,” Arberg said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.

“The injury required sutures, and out of an abundance of caution, he stayed in the hospital overnight and was discharged the next morning,” added Arberg. “His doctors ruled out a seizure. They believe the fall was likely due to lightheadedness caused by dehydration.”

The New York Times noted that Roberts — who was nominated as a chief justice by former President George W. Bush and took his seat in September 2005 — previously experienced seizures in 1993 and 2007.


Based on his latest court opinions he should have also been admitted for a chronic case of liberalism.
