Man apprehended after jumping White House fence
WASHINGTON - The Secret Service has apprehended a man who jumped over the White House fence.
This latest incident comes about a month after a previous White House fence jumper sprinted across the lawn, past armed uniformed agents and entered the mansion. The fallout from that September incident and other Secret Service breaches in security for the president led Julia Pierson to step down as director of the agency.
Video of the incident Wednesday night taken by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts just inside the White House fence on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The video shows the man lifting his shirt as if to show agents that he has no weapons. The man is then seen kicking and punching two Secret Service dogs that were released on him.
