A man outside the White House on Saturday threatened to assassinate President Donald Trump. 25-year-old Roger Hedgpeth reportedly told a Secret Service officer that he was planning to kill the president.
“I am here to assassinate President Donald Trump,” police reports said Hedgpeth told them. “I have a knife to do it with.”
The Secret Service arrested Hedgpeth and found a knife with a 3 1/2 inch blade in his possession.
Hedgpeth was charged with threatening bodily harm in the incident. He has since been referred to a hospital for treatment.
No actual attack on Trump or attempt to do so took place.
