Secret Service encountered Murray just outside the Naval Observatory grounds and arrested him based on the intelligence bulletin from Texas, WRC said. The station did not specify why Texas authorities had issued the alert.
Neither the websites of the Secret Service, the Washington Metropolitan Police department, nor their social media accounts made any mention of the arrest.
