WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service says a Dallas man has been arrested at the White House after he reportedly traveled to Washington intending to kill “all white police” at the executive mansion.
The agency says in a statement that an alert had been issued by the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland to be on the lookout for Michael Arega.
Officers spotted him on the north side of Pennsylvania Avenue near Lafayette Park.
Arega was detained by Secret Service Uniformed Division officers and arrested without incident.
He has been taken to the District of Columbia’s Metropolitan Police Department, where charges are pending.
