Man Tries To Force His Way Into Pentagon

An unidentified man tried force his way into the Pentagon Wednesday, the Associated Press reports.

Building police drew their weapons but fired no shots. Instead, they wrestled him to the ground and arrested him.

The man appeared in front of the Pentagon entrance that sits on a major transportation hub at 1:15 p.m. He tried to push his way past security. It is not clear where he came from or what his motives were.

The man appeared to be unarmed, according to Pentagon officials.
