Secret Service agents arrested a woman with a gun outside the White House Thursday night shortly after President Obama delivered an address to the nation on immigration, officials saidç SİA reports citing USA Today.
April Lenhart, of Mount Morris., Mich., was participating in a demonstration along the White House's north fence when agents noticed a gun in a holster on her front hip at about 8:28 p.m., Secret Service spokesman Robert Hoback said in an email.
The 23-year-old woman was immediately taken into custody, Hoback said. She faces charges of possessing an unregistered firearm and unregistered ammunition, and for carrying a pistol without a license.
The president was in the White House at the time.
Lenhart had no statements, Hoback said.
The arrest was first reported by CBS News.
