2 White House Break-In Tries in 12 Hours

In less than 12 hours, there were two separate attempts to penetrate the White House grounds. In the first incident, at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, a man was arrested after he climbed over a bicycle rack and tried to access White House grounds. At around 6:45 a.m. Monday, another man tried to get into the White House by walking through a door into a construction site at Pennsylvania Avenue and East Executive Avenue. He got into a brief fight with an officer before he was arrested. The incidents follow a year filled with scandals for the Secret Service that led to the resignation of director Julia Pierson and a department shakeup.
