CENTRAL TEXAS MAN ARRESTED FOR JUMPING WHITE HOUSE FENCE
(WASHINGTON DC) A man jumped over a White House fence and
made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended,
Friday. The man, identified at 42
year-old Omar Gonzalez from Copperas Cove hopped the north fence and ran across
the lawn into the White House. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation
of much of the White House as Secret Service agents drew their guns to rush
staffers and journalists out a side door.
President Barack Obama and his daughters along with a friend had just left
the White House minutes before the security breach. First Lady Michelle Obama
was not home at the time either. Gonzales was charged with unlawful entry into
the White House complex and was taken to a nearby hospital after complaining of
chest pain. Secret Service Spokesman Ed
Donovan said Gonzalez appeared to be unarmed but noted that he ignored commands
from officers to stop. A search of Gonzalez turned up no weapons.
