Person Arrested After Scaling Fence to Enter White House Grounds

Intruder arrested after breaching White House security

That is when the officer stopped him, after which Tran said: 'I am a friend of the President.

The incident took place just before midnight while the President was in residence, CNN reports.

Bongino's comments came after a man breached the White House security ring late Friday, scaling the White House fence and making it to within yards of the executive residence before being apprehended by agents.

The Secret Service didn't identify the person who was arrested. It's not clear how Tran made it to Washington D.C., but investigators say he scaled a 6-foot tall fence with a backpack on.

He was deemed a flight risk by a judge, and is accused of entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a unsafe weapon.

Pregnant women, on the other hand, might go into premature labor, have a miscarriage or stillbirth. People who have purchased any of the raw milk cheese produced by Vulto should not consume them.

He was carrying a backpack and scaled a fence to get into the White House grounds, according to reports. "Tran alleged that he had been followed, and his 'phone and email communications [had been] read by third parties, ' and that he had 'been called schizophrenic'".

He was living in his auto, the sibling added, before calling Tran a "very good brother". Officers searched the north and south grounds of the White House complex and found nothing. "And I'll tell ya - I love the Secret Service, I love the men and women there, the rank-and-file agents are the best people I've ever met - but the management is an absolute disaster".

The Secret Service and National Park Service have been working on a new fence design and other upgrades.

Several people have managed to trespass on White House grounds in recent years.
