WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service officers have apprehended a man who jumped over the White House’s North Fence and appeared to be heading in the direction of the presidential residence.

The officers with their guns drawn ordered the man to lie down. The Secret Service says the man is in custody.

Secret Service officers deal with fence jumpers or bags tossed over the fence as serious potential threats. Thursday’s episode occurred on the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
