WASHINGTON - The 23-year-old Maryland man who climbed over the White House fence was ordered held without bond in an appearance Thursday before a federal magistrate judge.

Dominic Adesanya resisted being taken away and started talking as two court officers removed him from the courtroom.

The defendant has been charged with felonies for assaulting two police dogs and making threats.

A preliminary hearing and detention hearing have been scheduled for Monday.

Earlier Wednesday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said options are being considered to enhance security at the White House, including more personnel, technology and physical impediments to get in.

He praised the agents' response, saying, "Yesterday's incident underscores the professionalism of the Secret Service."
