Florida Man Accused Of Bringing Guns Onto Capitol Grounds Arrested

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Florida man is under arrest after police say he brought unregistered guns and ammunition onto the grounds of the U.S. Capitol Building.

U.S. Capitol Police say 59-year-old Ty Carroll Mitchum of Clearwater, Fla., was arrested after officers encountered him outside the building Sunday afternoon and searched his car.

Police say Mitchum told officers that he had firearms in his car, which was parked near the Capitol. Police say officers searching the car found three firearms and several rounds of ammunition.

Mitchum, who was taken to Capitol Police headquarters for processing, has been charged with possession of an unregistered firearm and ammunition.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
