Miriam Carey, identified Capitol Hill car chase driver, was taken for mental-health evaluation - CBS News

A woman who multiple law enforcement sources identified as the driver who ran her car into a White House barrier Thursday and died after a subsequent car chase and police shooting around the U.S. Capitol was taken for a mental-health evaluation after an encounter with police in Connecticut nearly a year ago, CBS News correspondent Bob Orr reports.

Law enforcement sources confirmed to Orr Friday that Miriam Carey, 34, a licensed dental hygienist of Stamford, Conn., told police in December that she was a prophet, that President Obama would place the city of Stamford under a "lockdown" and that he had her and her residence under electronic surveillance.

Hmmm, the Naval Yard shooter had a similar story. Surveillance fears, paranoia of the FedGov, sleep deprivation, etc.
