(UnitedVoice.com) – A man from Florida was arrested on Saturday after arriving at the White House with apparently nefarious intentions.
A police officer with the Secret Service was approached by Roger Hedgpeth, who told the officer that he was there “to assassinate President Donald Trump.”
Once Hedgpeth was searched, a 3.5-inch knife was found and he admitted he planned to use the knife to assassinate the president.
Hedgpeth was placed under arrest and it was discovered that he’s an endangered person who was reported missing. After his arrest, he was taken to the hospital to undergo a mental health evaluation. He has not yet been released.
An official with the DC Metropolitan Police Department gave a statement to CNN and said that “at no point” was anyone who’s protected by the Secret Service in danger.
