White House Fence Jumper Detained

The White House was on alert when Joseph Caputo, cloaked¬†with an American flag, jumped the fence, and charged towards the White House as the Obama’s ate their Thanksgiving dinner.

Caputo jumped the fence at the North Lawn around 2:45 p.m. He was quickly apprehended by the Secret Service.

CNN reports:

Caputo allegedly was at least the third person in 2015 to scale a fence and make it on to White House property. While most are quickly captured, a 42-year-old Iraq war veteran in September 2014 ran through the main floor past a stairway that leads up to the first family’s residence before he was subdued by Secret Service agents in the East Room.

The fence scaled Thursday had recently been outfitted with 7-inch steel spikes to deter such occurrences.
