(WASHINGTON) — An individual jumped the bike rack on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House but not the actual fence, the Secret Service said Friday.
A statement from Brian Leary, spokesman for the U.S. Secret Service said, “At approximately 7pm tonight, an individual jumped the bike rack on Pennsylvania Avenue. The individual was immediately arrested by USS Uniformed Division Officers The individual is currently charged with “Unlawful Entry” and was transported to the Metropolitan Police Department 2nd District.”
The incident prompted a temporary lockdown of the White House but the lockdown has since been lifted.
