The driver of one of the vans transporting the White House press pool was detained during a security screening Monday morning as President Donald Trump was leaving his Mar-a-Lago resort in West Palm Beach, Florida. The driver of the van forgot that he had his personal firearm inside the vehicle.
The security screening took place in a parking lot across the street from the Mar-a-Lago resort and about an hour before press vans joined up with presidential motorcade.
All drivers were replaced after the incident, according to White House staff. The press was loaded back into vans and the driver was being questioned by an officer.
