OCEANSIDE (CBSLA) — An Oceanside man was arrested Monday for being in possession of a machete, a bayonet, and other prohibited weapons near the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Donald Craighead, 44, was arrested Monday morning after U.S. Capitol Police on patrol pulled him over in the 500 block of South Capitol Street, SW. Craighead’s Dodge Dakota pickup truck was spotted at about midnight, parked outside the DNC headquarters.
