White House firecrackers, which sounded an awful lot like bullets, put one man under arrest in the nation's capitol Monday. The man’s White house firecracker stunt would be a foolish antic any day, but especially just hours after a shooter massacred 12 people a few miles away.
According to The Inquisitr on Sept. 17, a man dressed like a summer tourist in shorts and a white short-sleeve shirt, was having a little fun outside the White house throwing firecrackers at the fence. Alexander Sahagian was arrested and the charge will probably be “throwing projectiles.”
With a high-alert in place and bodies still in the spot where they were gunned down just a few miles away, the sounds of these firecrackers were mistaken as bullets. Some people even tweeted that “shots have been fired. White House Secret Service spokesperson took to Twitter to stop the rumor, writing:
"There have not been shots outside the White House."
Uniformed agents ordered journalists, who were in the driveway in front of the West Wing at the time, to go inside. The agents then sealed off the area in front of the White House.
There is no further news on this guy who picked the worst place in the world on Tuesday Sept. 16, to light off some firecrackers.
