An armed Michigan woman was arrested outside the White House on Thursday night, a law enforcement source told NBC News. The woman, who was identified as April Lenhart, 23, and isn't cooperating with investigators, was arrested after plainclothes Secret Service agents spotted her with a 9mm handgun in a holster along the White House's north fence line, a Secret Service official said.

Lenhart was held on suspicion of possession of an unregistered firearm, the official said. A second person who was with her wasn't arrested.

It was the second such arrest in two days. R.J. "Renae" Kapheim, 43, of Davenport, Iowa, was arrested Wednesday near the White House with a rifle and a knife in his car, according to charging documents. Kapheim, who investigators said claimed that President Barack Obama had called him personally for an appointment, pleaded not guilty Thursday to illegally carrying a rifle.
