Oliver was scheduled to appear in Forsyth County State Court on Sept. 11 for an arraignment on misdemeanor charges of loitering and criminal trespass. That hearing was rescheduled after he was arrested on charges of reckless conduct and carrying a weapon without a license.
When investigators confronted him, deputies also realized Oliver had an active warrant for first-degree burglary in connection with a break-in at an Islamic Center.
Oliver is now jailed on a $25,000 bond, jail records showed.
Rainwater said the sheriff’s office takes no chances with safety at the courthouse. Four years ago, a man identified as a sovereign citizen attacked the Forsyth County courthouse and wounded a deputy before dying in a hail of bullets.
Officials said Dennis Marx drove his SUV through the courthouse lawn, threw out homemade smoke grenades, pepper spray grenades and spike sticks, and was killed when deputies returned fire.
