U.S. Capitol Police arrested a man carrying a bayonet and machete in a truck bearing white supremacist symbols near the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington on Monday.

Donald Craighead, 44, of Oceanside, California, was arrested for possession of prohibited weapons. Both bayonets and machetes are illegal in Washington, according to police.

"It is not clear if he was planning to attend any upcoming demonstrations or if he has ties to any previous cases in the area," according to a police press release.

Local and federal law enforcement have been preparing for a Sept. 18 rally meant to falsely paint the arrests of members of the pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol as politically motivated.
