A man with a BB gun and a woman carrying a pistol without a license were arrested outside the White House on Saturday attempting to deliver a letter to President Joe Biden, WTOP-TV reported Monday.
One of the suspects approached an officer dressed in plain clothes and told him that the pair wanted to meet and “deliver a letter” to Biden, a U.S. Secret Service representative said, according to the station.
The man told the officer that he was armed, and the woman said there was another weapon in a nearby vehicle, according to the report.
Both the man and woman were arrested, and the weapons and vehicle were secured by law enforcement, WTOP reported.
