Man Detained After Reportedly Jumping Bike Rack Near White House Fence

A man has been detained after jumping a bike rack near the White House fence.

This individual did not get over the White House fence, and CNN’s Ryam Nobles said this afternoon that as soon as he jumped the bike rack, “two Secret Service agents immediately tackled the person and put that person under arrest.”

Nobles said an official told him the person was “disturbed in some way” and “had a letter” he was trying to deliver to someone in the White House.

This comes just a day after reports that the White House fence jumper last week was not caught by the Secret Service for a whopping 15 minutes.

You can watch CNN’s report above.
