Secret Service arrests man with guns near White House on Sunday

Source: reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Law enforcement officers arrested a man with multiple firearms near the White House on Sunday morning, the Secret Service and Washington Metropolitan Police Department said.

The man was arrested after he approached uniformed Secret Service officers at an intersection close to the White House, the Secret Service said in a statement on Monday.

A report by the Washington police on Sunday suggested a different version of events, saying the man was urinating in public when law enforcement officers approached him.


The man said he “came to the White House in order to speak with (Admiral) Mike Rogers and (General) Jim Mattis for advice on missing paychecks and how to get the dog chip out of my head,” the police report said.

Law enforcement officers searched the man’s car, a vehicle with Tennessee license plates bearing tags for the Fraternal Order of Police, an association of police officers, where they found firearms, brass knuckles, three folding knives, and ammunition, the report said.

1. "The individual was arrested for possession of several firearms"

So Trump is anti-gun. Tell everyone. Trump arrests people for having guns.

6. Certainly can't have due process

to limit constitutional rights can we?

It was a poorly written EO. The intent was fine but the execution was poor.
