Man Arrested After Jumping Bike Rack in Front of White House

The Secret Service says they have arrested a suspect who attempted to breach the White House fence Tuesday afternoon.

According to a tweet sent out by the Secret Service the suspect jumped the bike rack where he was promptly detained.

“Secret Service responding to an individual who jumped the bike rack along the North Fence Line of Penn Ave. Suspect in custody,” the agency wrote in a tweet.

The incident occurred around 4:00 pm a day after the Washington Post accused President Donald Trump of allegedly sharing classified information with Russia, however, this is not the first time a person has attempted to jump over the White House fence this year.

In March a suspect scaled the fence and was on the White House grounds for nearly 15 minutes before he was apprehended.

The incident and several others like it has caused White House personnel to secure a larger area around the complex.
