BALTIMORE (AP) – Baltimore police say they arrested a man at a commuter rail station after a cabbie told them he had been acting suspiciously, had a gun and mentioned The White House.

Police Commissioner Frederick Bealefeld says 25-year-old Asa Seeley was arrested after a foot chase at the station at Franklin and Mulberry streets about 7 a.m.

According to Bealefeld, the cab driver told them Seeley wanted a ride to his home in Washington, D.C., and mentioned The White House. When the driver saw the butt of a rifle sticking out from a towel Seeley was carrying, he dropped him at the station and flagged down police.

Bealefeld says Seeley had boarded a MARC train, but got off as officers arrived — leaving behind the rifle. Seeley broke his ankle jumping from the platform trying to flee from police.
