Dallas man arrested at White House, wanted to 'kill all white police'

Dallas man arrested at White House, wanted to 'kill all white police'

In a statement shared on social media, the Secret Service said: "Today at approximately 2.55pm, the Secret Service Protective Intelligence Division was notified to be on the lookout for Michael Arega, who reportedly traveled to Washington D.C. for the goal of killing "all white police" at the White House".

In U.S. District Court on Tuesday, Arega, who works as an inspector and an Uber driver, told the judge he wanted his wife to represent him in court and attempted to refuse the representation of a public defender.

A man from Dallas, who reportedly traveled to Washington D.C. with the intent of killing "all white police" at the White House, was arrested near the executive mansion Monday, Secret Service said. It was not immediately known if Arega has an attorney.

On receiving the alert, which was issued by Montgomery County Maryland Police Department, the Secret Service started their search for Arega, and "immediately increased their posture of readiness".

"Now [I] am going to.[White] House make sure kill All white POLICE!" read his post from Monday.

Arega also wrote Trump should be put in jail "in the name of Jesus Christ".

In a statement, authorities said Arega traveled from Texas in an attempt to carry out his plan. That's when they alerted the Secret Service's Protective Intelligence Division.

When cops caught up with him, Arega did not have any weapons, and Metropolitan Police charged him with making felony threats.
