North Ga man facing Capitol charges was banned from area school

Meredith is accused of threatening House Speaker Pelosi

Channel 2 Action News has learned that a man facing charges for threatening to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was banned from a metro Atlanta private school.

Cleveland Grover Meredith, originally of Hiawassee, has been charged with threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in text messages he sent after the attack. Federal charging documents show that he texted he was thinking about “putting a bullet in (Pelosi’s) noggin on live TV.”

Channel 2′s Tony Thomas reached out to The Lovett School about Meredith’s connection on Monday. Here is the statement from the school:

“The Lovett School can confirm that Cleveland G. Meredith, Jr. is a 1986 graduate of the school. Lovett severed its relationship with this alumnus and banned him from campus in 2019 due to threats of violence.”

Meredith also faces weapons charges after he texted a friend he was headed to Washington with armor-piercing ammo.
