Man Arrested After Jumping White House Fence, Causing Lockdown 

The incident comes roughly a month after an intruder armed with a knife scaled the White House fence and made it inside the executive mansion, raising questions about security levels at the heavily guarded complex.

A man jumped the White House fence on Wednesday and was attacked by Secret Service dogs before being arrested, a Secret Service spokesman said.

"Dogs got him," the spokesman said, referring to the intruder.

Video showed Secret Service agents surrounding the man on the north lawn of the White House, which was put on lockdown.

The incident comes roughly a month after an intruder armed with a knife scaled the White House fence and made it inside the executive mansion, raising questions about security levels at the heavily guarded complex and spurring the resignation of then Secret Service Director Julia Pierson.

A Secret Service spokesman said no further information was available about the jumper on Wednesday.
