A car that trailed a motorcade carrying President Barack Obama’s daughters on to Pennsylvania Avenue prompted a security lockdown at the White House on Tuesday.
A Secret Service spokesman said the car entered the security checkpoint at 17th Street and Pennsylvania and was immediately
stopped by Secret Service uniformed officers.
The male driver was arrested and Washington police checked the car for explosives.
The Secret Service identified the driver as Mathew Evan Goldstein, 55. He was arrested and charged with unlawful entry and was transported to city police for processing.
Goldstein was identified as an employee of the Internal Revenue Service.
