So now we know what all the hoopla was about this morning on every major news station. A Pennsylvania man has been arrested for making a bomb threat outside the White House. This just in from the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) — A man has been arrested after police say he made a bomb threat outside the White House.

D.C. police spokesman Araz Alali says the man approached an officer at the White House gates Wednesday morning and warned that a bomb would detonate in a truck parked nearby.

Surrounding streets and the entrance to a nearby Metro rail station were shut down as the Secret Service inspected the vehicle for explosives.

Streets were reopened after nothing dangerous was found inside the truck.

The man has been identified as 44-year-old Krzysztof Wasik. He has been charged with making felony threats and is being held pending a court appearance.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer
