    Exclamation Man arrested near Capitol with guns, sword

    Man arrested near Capitol with guns, sword

    My colleague Sarah Abruzzese reports:

    The United States Capitol Police arrested a driver near the Capitol on Tuesday around 4 p.m.

    A search of the vehicle found: Two long guns, three handguns and a sword, according to Sgt. Kimberly Schneider, the spokeswoman for the USCP. Charges against the driver are pending.

    UPDATE:

    Capitol Police Just Released This Statement:

    At approximately 2:20 pm today, a driver approached a U.S. Capitol Police officer for directions at Third Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Upon further investigation, the vehicle was deemed suspicious and the driver was detained for further questioning. He was arrested without incident and transported to USCP headquarters for processing.

    Out of an abundance of caution, the U.S. Capitol Police swept the vehicle that was driven to ensure that nothing of a hazardous nature was found. All tests were clear with nothing hazardous found. A search of the vehicle incident to arrest recovered two long rifles, three handguns, one sword, and several other items of concern.

    The subject is identified as 49-year-old Timothy Whitfield of Long Beach, California. Whitfield has been charged with Carrying a Pistol Without a License, Possession of Unregistered Ammunition, Possession of Unregistered Firearm.

    You have to register ammo in DC? How could that even work?

    In following in the footsteps of the politicians that occupy D.C., the Capitol Police decided to make stuff up as they go along.

    Yes, as Yogi Berra used to say that's "deja vu all over again". For you younger guys that is Yogi Berra the baseball player not Yogi Bear.
