Sai Varshith Kandula of Chesterfield, a 19 year old has been arrested on multiple charges, including threatening to kill or harm a President, Vice President or family member, after his truck crashed into security barriers near the White House on Monday night. The incident, which left no one injured, occurred on the north side of Lafayette Square, just a few hundred feet from the White House, just before 10 p.m. ET. A Nazi flag was seized by authorities at the scene of the incident. The truck was found to contain no weapons or explosives. The Secret Service said the incident may have been intentional. A law enforcement official told NBC News that the suspect made threatening statements about the White House at the scene but was quickly detained. The official said, “I don’t think there’s any place for a Nazi flag or the statements that he made.” Arrest charges associated with the incident also included alleged assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a vehicle, trespassing and destruction of federal property. U.S. Park Police spokesman Thomas Twiname said the adult male suspect was in custody. President Joe Biden’s exact whereabouts at the time of the incident were unclear. He had met with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy Monday night at the White House to discuss the debt limit.

Guglielmi said in a later statement posted to Twitter that the truck had been deemed safe by Washington D.C. police and that "preliminary investigation reveals the driver may have intentionally struck the security barriers." Park Police would file charges with investigative support from the Secret Service, Guglielmi said. The Reuters news agency published an image showing a Nazi-style red flag emblazoned with a swastika laid on the floor beside the van. Reuters, citing its own photographer on the scene and a witness, reported that this and other pieces of evidence apparently taken from the truck had been placed on the sidewalk and were then seized by officers. Authorities have not commented on the flag. NBC News has reached out to the Secret Service for comment.

The incident occurred while President Biden was at the White House, but it is unclear whether he was in the building at the time. The cause and manner of the crash remain under investigation.
