WASHINGTON, (UPI) — A man was arrested after running at the vehicle carrying former presidential candidate Mitt Romney to a White House appointment, the U.S. Secret Service said.

The unnamed man reached into an open window of the vehicle as it stopped at a White House gate Wednesday. He was yelling Romney’s name as he was taken away, CNN reported.

The Secret Service said in a statement the man “became combative with uniformed Secret Service agents and was arrested for assault of a police officer and unlawful entrance.”

Romney was visiting the White House for a lunch with President Barack Obama, and did not appear to have been touched by the suspect, CNN said.
