Additional Charges Against Accused White House Fence Jumper

Thursday, 16 Oct 2014 04:58 PM

The man accused of jumping a White House fence and running into the presidential mansion while carrying a knife now faces a new weapons charge.

A federal grand jury on Thursday returned the charge of possession of illegal ammunition magazines against Omar Gonzalez in an updated indictment. Gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds were recovered from Gonzalez's car after his Sept. 19 arrest. Such magazines are illegal under District of Columbia law.

The new indictment also includes two federal counts that Gonzalez allegedly assaulted, resisted or impeded two U.S. Secret Service officers who apprehended him.

The case is the latest in an embarrassing string of Secret Service security failures that led to the resignation of Secret Service director Julia Pierson.
