The White House almost got an unwanted visitor Monday night … a U-Haul driver carrying a Nazi flag careened into security barriers right across the street from where President Joe Biden sleeps.
Secret Service rep Anthony Guglielmi tweeted … the truck driver crashed into a barricade in Lafayette Square around 10 PM … but, according to a witness who spoke to CBS, the suspect was actually aiming for the White House.
Guglielmi said no one was injured and the cause of the accident was under investigation, but he suggested the driver might have intentionally rammed the barriers.
Police quickly descended on the scene and arrested the driver, who had the Nazi flag on him. Law enforcement sources told CBS the man is an American citizen who made threats against President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. The suspect — whose name has not been disclosed — did not possess any weapons or explosives.
Police sources also told CBS … the man has not popped up on any FBI watch lists and did not appear to have a significant rap sheet.
Federal authorities charged the man with assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, a threaten to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on a president, vice president or family member and destruction of federal property and trespassing.
