WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT) - A woman charged with ramming her van into security barriers outside of the White House made a bizarre claim.

Jessica Ford, 35, of Tennessee, said President Trump is her fiancée.

The White House was put on lockdown on Friday.

"We saw the car hit the barricade, and then the person kept trying to push through the barricade. The tires were burning rubber. They were smoking a lot," a witness told CNN. "Then two security people ... came out with guns drawn and asked that person to stop, and they didn't listen."

No shots were fired and the woman was apprehended immediately, according to the Secret Service.

Police found a BB gun in the Tennessee woman's car.

This is not Ford's first run-in with the Secret Service.

Court documents showed Ford tried to jump a White House fence on May 17, 2017. She was ordered to stay away from the area.
