WASHINGTON (AP) - 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.
Gwendolyn Crump is a spokeswoman for District of Columbia police. She 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 a vehicle.
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.
