A former police officer was arrested after the Secret Service found him with a concealed gun trying to enter Trump Tower late Tuesday night.

The incident happened as Donald Trump’s motorcade was approaching the building in Manhattan just after 10 p.m. Tuesday, reports. 

The Secret Service said the man was in a secured area on the sidewalk and refused to obey commands of agents.

Authorities found him with a conceal weapon, which he had a permit to carry.

It was unclear whether the man intended to harm Trump, who “entered the building without incident,” the Secret Service said.
