The man who managed to jump the fence and run into the White House Friday night had 800 rounds of ammunition in boxes and magazines, two hatchets, and a machete in his car, a federal prosecutor said today. The prosecutor also noted that the man, 42-year-old veteran Omar Jose Gonzalez, was arrested in July with a sniper rifle and a map marking the White House.
Gonzalez appeared in court today on one charge of unlawfully entering a restricted building or grounds while carrying a deadly or dangerous weapon. The prosecutor told the judge he believes Gonzalez is "a danger to the president." The judge ordered Gonzalez to be detained.
