Not even close. Recalculating…. make a right turn… to the White House
A 19-year-old Missouri man was arrested after police say he intentionally crashed a rented U-Haul truck near the White House, and investigators recovered a Nazi flag from the vehicle.
The man, whom police identified as Sai Varshith Kandula of Chesterfield, Mo., was charged with threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on the president, vice president or a family member, along with other counts including assault with a dangerous weapon and trespassing. Police declined to provide further details early Tuesday about the nature of the alleged threat.
A federal official with knowledge of the investigation said that after the crash, police recovered a Nazi flag from the vehicle. A photo on WUSA9 shows a police officer examining the flag on the ground next to the truck.
Police have declined to provide further details about the nature of the alleged attack or information about the suspect. Law enforcement officials also indicated the suspect made threatening statements during his arrest.
