LOS ANGELES - A man with a revolver was arrested in Los Angeles on Wednesday in an incident "related to" a planned appearance by US Vice President Joe Biden in the city, a police spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman, Officer Liliana Preciado, said no further details of the incident were immediately available, but added that the man was to be booked in connection with the incident.

Biden was scheduled to appear at a local business establishment with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti for a 1 p.m. event on raising the minimum wage. The Los Angeles Times reported that a man with a gun was detained near the venue at about noon. It was not clear whether Biden was in the vicinity at the time.
