A man is in custody for trying to unlawfully enter the White House today, less than 24 hours after a fence-jumper made it all the way into the building.
According to the Associated Press, The Secret Service says the man showed up at one of the White House gates on foot, then showed up in his car at another gate and pulled into the vehicle screening area. He refused to leave and was arrested for unlawful entry.
The White House was not locked down.
The arrest comes a day after another man, identified as 42-year-old Omar Gonzalez of Copperas Cove (kahp-ruhs KOHV'), Texas, scaled the fence and managed to get through the North Portico doors before agents were able to apprehend him.
The president and first family were not at home for either incident. They're at Camp David.
