A man arrested on Wednesday morning for making bomb threats near the White House was angry about regulations, according to published reports.
Around 5 a.m. Wednesday, Kryzystof Wasik, 44, approached a guard office near the White House and claimed to have a bomb in a nearby truck, according to reports.
The Secret Service and police closed down nearby streets for two hours, investigated the truck and found no cause for concern. Police arrested Wasik on charges of making felony threats.
According to the Washington City Paper, the bomb threat was a way for the man to complain about regulations on semi-trailer trucks.
“He was upset about the rules and regulations concerning semi-trucks and was angry about fines that he had to pay,” wrote a Secret Service officer in an affidavit, according to the City Paper. The newspaper reports Wasik hoped the threat would allow him to speak with President Obama.
