Ohio Man Pleads Not Guilty To White House Security Breach

Jul 26, 2013

A Kettering man has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of crashing his SUV into steel barriers near the White House last month.

32-year-old Joseph Reel says he has bipolar disorder. Secret Service agents say they found 200 rounds of ammunition in his SUV and he was attempting to spray paint a "Don't Tread On Me" snake on the White House. A trial date is pending. Reel has posted two videos on line featuring him making an anti-government rant and delivering a message to his infant son.
