Pickup driver with knives and swastika on side-view mirrors arrested near DNC headquarters in DC
Today the U.S. Capitol Police arrested a California man who was carrying illegal weapons in his car.
The driver was identified as 44-year-old Donald Craighead of Oceanside.
“This is good police work plain and simple,” said Chief Tom Manger. “We applaud the officers’ keen observation and the teamwork that resulted in this arrest.”
The patrol police reportedly spotted a car without a license plate around midnight. Judging by the photo, symbols of Nazism were painted on the car, and inside the cabin there were runes, which are often used by supporters of Nazism.
“The Capitol Police officer pulled over the truck along the 500 block of South Capitol Street, SW,” the press release said. “The officers noticed a bayonet and machete, which are illegal in Washington, D.C., inside the truck.”
It is currently unknown whether Craighead planned to participate in any protests or provocations.
