Authorities say the man accused of driving an SUV into an office building in the nation’s capital has been charged with arson and other counts.
D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said in an email Saturday that 32-year-old Charles Morrell Ball of New Market, Md., had also been charged with felony destruction of property and felony unauthorized use of vehicle driver.
Authorities had said previously that they believed the driver intentionally crashed into the office building Friday night. The vehicle had been reported stolen.
The building is less than a mile from the White House in the city’s business district. It has a mix of offices, retail shops and restaurants.
