Secret Service agents arrested a man accused of climbing on top of a bike rack that was placed by the fencing around the White House.

The man, whose name was not released, didn’t make it over the fence, said Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary, The Associated Press reported.

He was charged with unlawful entry and taken into custody, AP said.

Secret Service then turned the suspect over to the District of Columbia police on Sunday, Mr. Leary told AP.

The arrest comes just a few days after Secret Service authorities investigated the crash of a small drone on the White House lawn.
