WASHINGTON - The U.S. Justice Department said on Monday it has detained a Maryland man who allegedly plotted to drive a stolen U-haul into pedestrians on the sidewalks of the National Harbor complex, in a foiled plan that was inspired by the Islamic State (ISIS).

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Maryland said it had charged 28-year-old Rondell Henry of Germantown, M.D. with interstate commerce transportation of a stolen vehicle, and added that the government has since petitioned a federal court to detain him pending trial after learning more about his motives.
