Hedgpeth was taken into custody, his vehicle impounded, and he was brought to a hospital for a mental health evaluation, according to police 

Before his arrest, Hedgpeth was seen patrolling around the White House with his car, and he is listed in public health records as a ‘missing person with mental health issues’

‘I have a knife to do it with,’ Hedgpeth allegedly said, according to a police report.
