Woman drives into White House barricade, claims fiance is president | IOL News

Washington – The Tennessee woman who police said attempted to drive her vehicle into a White House barricade yelled out in court during her initial hearing Saturday: “My fiance is the president.”

Jessica Ford, 35, of La Vergne, Tennessee, was arrested by Secret Service officers Friday shortly after the incident which began around 3 p.m., when she attempted to drive her white van into a barricade. According to court documents, authorities say Ford, while sitting behind the wheel, was also holding what appeared to have been a handgun.

Officers at the scene Friday, according to the documents, ordered Ford multiple times to drop the gun. Ford refused. An officer reached through the driver’s side window and removed the gun from her hands. Ford then refused to exit the vehicle, at which point officers pulled her out through the window and placed her under arrest.
