Donald Trump has a flair for the dramatic, and it looks like his supporters are following suit.

A New York City college student was arrested on Monday after allegedly entering Trump Tower with a knife, fireworks, and other weapons.

According to PEOPLE, Alexander Wang (no relation, obvi) was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of fireworks after trying to enter the building.

A New York Police Department spokesperson said the 19-year-old entered the building around 6:30 p.m. and his backpack set off a metal detector, prompting Secret Service officials to search his belongings.

Authorities found an eight-foot black rope, handcuffs, a Swiss Army knife, a second knife with a six-inch blade, an M-180 firework, a laptop, an empty water gun, and a garrote — a wire-like device used for strangulation.

The Baruch College student’s father told officials his son has autism, and he is a supporter of the president-elect who simply likes Trump Tower.

Wang has not yet entered a plea, and police are currently looking into why the Trump supporter had the weapons in the building.

We’re just glad no one was hurt and the suspect is in custody.
