Man Arrested After Jumping White House Fence

A man wearing an American flag as a cape was arrested on Thursday after successfully jumping the fence to get on to the White House lawn. While he may have stuck the landing, his success was short-lived as he was immediately arrested.

A person outside the White House was able to capture photos of the man's jump and landing:

The Obamas were celebrating Thanksgiving at the White House. The White House was immediately put on lockdown following the jumper's stunt.

No other details about the jumper are currently available. This marks the third time this year that someone has managed to hop the fence to the White House lawn.
