Man arrested in probe of White House bullets

Authorities have arrested a man who allegedly was involved in a shooting incident that may be responsible for two bullets found this week at the White House, the U.S. Secret Service said.

Police arrested Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez near Indiana, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Secret Service said. Authorities say they believe he was involved in a shooting that happened near the White House in Washington, D.C., on Friday night.

Two bullets were found Tuesday, including one that hit an exterior White House window and was stopped by bulletproof glass, and another found on the White House exterior.

Ortega-Hernandez is in the custody of the Pennsylvania State Police.

      It sounds like you're okay with it or that this type of stuff should be expected. You're free to disagree with his policies but to take a shot at the White House is something we ALL should be angered by. There are a lot of people that didn't agree with Bush's policies, but when he had the shoes thrown at him by that reporter it didnt matter whether we were Republicans or Democrats, we were Americans first and wouldn't stand for someone doing that to our President (or in this case, the White House)

    And now the horror that the Democrats have unleashed on us all – otherwise known as the Occupy movement – comes back to bite them in the @ss. This guy was an Occupy member and doubtful if he had mental health issues. The media are just saying that he had mental health issues in order to deflect the blame from the Occupy movement. Meanwhile, the Occupy movement continues as a crime wave in progress, disgusting everyone who is unfortunate enough to come into contact with its members.

      You're an idiot Uncle Meat. Where does it say anything about the Occupy Movement? Keep assuming, we all know what that means....

      Who is your source for this alleged affiliation, association and government cover-up?

      Oops...what was I thinking. Like most far-right (and many far-left) you just made it up.

      That was the best you could come up with? No sources? Just your own paranoid imagination?

    Another Occupy member shows his true colors. I wonder how the Left feel about having tied their wagon to the Occupy movement.
    We have yet to see a single OWS accomplishment other than a rolling crime wave, filth, rambling nonsense, and the disgust of most everyone who is unfortunate enough to encounter them. They have not helped the community in any way. They do not get along well with anyone outside their movement, much less each other. They are destroying every place they are encamped. They do nothing positive for anyone.

      Hey tin foil head,

      The man is from IDAHO....I didn't hear any Occupy anything in those parts of the country.

      Keep grasping at whatever you think will hold you up.

      You should try thinking for yourself instead of letting politicians think for you.

      You made two different posts within two minutes to talk about how much you don't like OWS. We get it. The difference is that no one cares what you have to say.
