Man arrested outside White House after threatening to assassinate the President

Police arrested a Brandon, Florida, man outside the White House after he threatened to assassinate Donald Trump.

Roger Hedgpeth, 25, approached a US Secret Service police officer on patrol and said, “I am here to assassinate President Donald Trump”.
Hedgpeth told the officer he planned to do it with a knife, which the Secret Service officer confiscated after a pat down search.
Roger was placed under arrest at which time the arresting officer was advised by the Secret Service that the suspect was a critically missing/endangered person as well as a mental health patient. Hedgpeth was then moved to a hospital for a mental health evaluation where he will be held until further notice, according to the report.
