WASHINGTON — A person was arrested outside the White House Thursday.
The Secret Service arrested someone around 8:40 p.m. for assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, threatening bodily harm and destruction of property.
“There was no impact to White House operations,” the Secret Service said in an email to WTOP.

This latest incident follows days after a man allegedly shot himself in front of the White House. Twenty-six-year-old Cameron Ross Burgess, of Maylene, Alabama, died a few hours later. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump were not at home when Burgess shot himself. No one else was injured.
