The alleged neo-Nazi accused of intentionally ramming a U-Haul truck into a White House security barrier has been identified as 19-year-old Sai Varsith Kandula, The Post has learned.
Kandula, of Chesterfield, Missouri, was identified as the man who smashed the box truck — adorned with a Nazi flag — into barriers along Lafayette Square, just steps from the White House, on Monday night, US Park Police officials said.
He has been charged with threatening to kill, kidnap or inflict harm on a president, vice president or family member, as well as assault with a dangerous weapon, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, trespassing and destruction of federal property, US Park Police said.
Law enforcement sources told ABC News that Kandula rented a U-Haul vehicle from Dulles International Airport in Virginia after traveling from St. Louis.
After barreling the vehicle into the security barriers, he reportedly exited the front seat and started waving the red, swastika-emblazoned flag before he was taken into custody.
