Pushy Pentagon Visitor Arrested

WASHINGTON -- Pentagon police got to draw their weapons when a man attempted to push through a security checkpoint Wednesday, but no shots were fired.

The man tried to get into the huge military headquarters near the building entrance that fronts on Washington's subway system and a number of bus routes. But it was unclear how he got to the Pentagon.

"Pentagon police wrestled him to the ground ... he is under arrest," said department spokeswoman Cheryl Irwin.

The man did not appear to be armed, according to Pentagon officials.
