Man Jumps White House Fence, Gets Caught


white-houseA man jumped the White House fence late on Wednesday, but Secret Service apprehended the intruder before he came close to the residence. “An individual jumped the north fence of the White House. He was immediately taken into custody by canine units and Uniformed Division officers,” said Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan. He also said no shots were fired.

A video posted on Fox News appears to show the jumper kicking a dog. Law enforcement said the jumper was sent to a hospital to be treated for dog bites.

Witnesses also said they heard the sound of dog barks and beleive it was a Secret Service dog.

Last month, a knife-wielding intruder jumped the White House fence and made it into the president’s personal residence before an off-duty Secret Service agent stopped him. The incident ultimately led to Julia Pierson to step down from her role as Secret Service director. Read more at the Washington Post.
