As I write this story, it is 5:57 PM eastern US time.  For about the past three hours, a strange and possibly dangerous situation has developed atop Hoover Dam:  A man driving an ARMORED CAR, claiming to have guns and/or "a bomb" has stopped his truck across the lanes of Hoover Dam Road and is displaying paper signs in the windows of the truck.

A major police response has taken place, but the person in the truck is almost completely immune to police.  Armored trucks are bullet-proof, including their windows.

When the story began, a virtual non-stop caravan of police vehicles headed out to the dam. A Command Post was set up.

There are fears the truck may contain explosives, in some terrorist effort to blow up the dam.  

 

 

UPDATES TO FOLLOW BELOW . . .

The fact he was able to drive down and cross the dam road it's possible that it is a terrorist attack. They built a bridge road across the gorge so that this wouldn't happen.

UPDATE 6:18 EDT --

Apparently, the truck is actually on the bridge over the dam, and NOT on the dam itself.  In a weird turn of events, the driver of the truck is holding a sign in the window now which reads "Mr President, release the reports."

 "Lv 003" is on the side of truck, that's no ordinary civilian vehicle.  (Continued below Ad)

 

UPDATE 6:32 PM EDT --

Suspect in custody.  Situation over without violence.
