After reportedly slamming a truck into bollards at a park near the White House, a 19-year-old man has been charged with threatening to kill, kidnap, or inflict injury on the president, vice president, or their family members.

According to US Park Police and the US Secret Service, Sai Varshith Kandula was detained after “intentionally” ramming a U-Haul box truck into obstacles outside Lafayette Park in Washington DC at around 9.40 p.m. on May 22.

He has also been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and driving recklessly.

Police officers were spotted taking a Nazi flag from the truck and scrutinizing the flag on the ground. A black bag and a roll of duct tape appear to have been taken from the scene as well.

Mr Kandula looks to have graduated from Marquette Senior High School in 2022.

Police have declined to disclose any further information regarding the alleged incident or the perpetrator. According to law authorities, the subject made threatening remarks during his detention.

“There were no injuries to any Secret Service or White House personnel and the cause and manner of the crash remain under investigation,” Anthony Guglielmi, the Secret Service chief of communications, said in a statement on Monday night.

The neighboring Hay Adams hotel evacuated guests quickly after the collision, but they were let back in by 1 a.m. ET.

Following the crash and the release of the suspect’s name, a wave of accounts on Elon Musk’s Twitter attempted to portray the incident as a “false flag” or a “hoax,” echoing similar statements made in the aftermath of a mass shooting at a Texas mall earlier this month, after the gunman was revealed to be an alleged neo-Nazi with SS and swastika tattoos.
