One person was in custody after a car drove up to a White House checkpoint late Saturday and the driver claimed to have a bomb in the vehicle, CNN reported.
 
There wasn't any immediate confirmation that a device was in the car, but the vehicle was being checked, CNN reported, citing law enforcement sources.
 
CNN said there didn't appear to be an imminent threat. Streets around the White House were closed immediately following the incident.
