20-year-old pleads guilty to driving truck into White House fence

20-year-old pleads guilty to driving truck into White House

A 20-year-old man from Missouri, on Monday, entered a guilty plea for crashing a rented truck into a fence surrounding the White House, describing it as an attempt to "seize political power."

Sai Varshith Kandula drove a U-haul truck into the White House fence in May of the previous year.

Following the crash, Park Police and Secret Service officers arrested Kandula after he exited the vehicle and waved a Nazi flag.

He pleaded guilty to a charge of willful injury and destruction of property, the US Attorney for the District of Columbia said in a statement.

Kandula, who was born in Chandanagar, India, and was living in the midwestern state of Missouri on a green card, is to be sentenced on August 23.

According to his plea agreement, Kandula was “attempting to gain access to the White House to seize political power.

It added: “Kandula’s intent was to replace the democratically elected government with a dictatorship fueled by the ideology of Nazi Germany and for himself to be put in charge of the United States.”
