A MAN jumped the north fence at the White House today and ran toward the building before being stopped.
A Secret Service spokesman told FOX News Channel that the man was apprehended by uniformed officers and the backpack he was carrying contained nothing suspicious.
The man was taken to a nearby police station and will be charged with unlawful entry.
A homeless man was arrested last month after a similar incident, in which he scaled the fence of the building.
He was charged with unlawful entry and attempted contempt after violating a stay away order imposed after previous incidents at the White House.
