Right before the weekend things started to really heat up in front of the White House. Literally.
The U.S. Secret Service apprehended a man who was in the midst of lighting his jacket on fire directly outside the White House.
Multiple reports state that an unidentified man is now under arrest and being treated for injuries after he lit the jacket he was wearing on fire.
While the incident has been clarified as no threat to President Trump, agents still evacuated the North Lawn of the White House as well as Lafayette Square and nearby sidewalks.
White House correspondent Mark Irons shared on his Twitter a video of the suspect being carried away by authorities.
Currently the man’s motives remain unknown but expect to hear more as the story develops.
