The news comes just two months after a man parked his pickup truck onto a sidewalk outside the Library of Congress and claimed he had explosives. That man, identified as Floyd Ray Roseberry, of North Carolina, was charged with threatening to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of an explosive device.
