WASHINGTON -- A spokeswoman for the Supreme Court says Chief Justice John Roberts suffered a seizure at his summer home in Maine Monday.

Roberts fell on a dock and has minor scrapes. He is said to have undergone a "thorough neurological evaluation, which revealed no cause for concern." Doctors called the incident "a benign idiopathic seizure."

The spokeswoman says Roberts, who will remain in the hospital overnight, had a similar episode in 1993.
