Capitol police arrest man with a machete

September 14, 2021: -On Monday, U.S. Capitol police arrested a man carrying banned weapons in a truck scrawled with White supremacist symbols outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee, the department said.

The driver, Donald Craighead of Oceanside, California, is claiming to the cops that he was “on patrol” and started talking about “white supremacist ideology,” the U.S. Capitol Police says.

The arrest was made on Monday, less than a week before people were set to gather at the Capitol for a rally in support of the hundreds jailed in connection with the deadly January 6 Capitol invasion.

“At this time, it is not clear if he planned to attend any upcoming demonstrations or if he has ties to any previous cases in the area,” the department added.

The Capitol Police further said that the Dodge Dakota pickup truck had “a swastika and other white supremacist symbols painted on it,” the Capitol Police further said. It also displayed a picture of an American flag in place of a license plate.

Craighead was arrested on Monday for possessing the prohibited weapons, police added.

“This is good police work plain and simple,” said USCP Chief Tom Manger. “We applaud the officers’ keen observation and the teamwork that resulted in this arrest.

“This is an excellent example of the work our officers do every day,” Operational Services Bureau Deputy Chief Jason Bell said.

The arrest came lesser than a month after another man, North Carolina resident Floyd Ray Roseberry, forced the U.S. Supreme Court and other buildings to evacuate after driving his pickup onto a Capitol Hill sidewalk and threatening to ignite a bomb.

Before he was arrested, Roseberry records himself while he spoke about a coming revolution and demanding to talk to President Joe Biden. He posted those videos to Facebook before the website took down his profile.

Security on Capitol Hill ramped up dramatically after the January 6 invasion, when hundreds of former President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the building where Congress had gathered to confirm Biden’s Electoral College victory.
