Man apprehended after jumping over White House fence.

The White House, which along with other high-profile U.S. locations has been in a state of heightened security since the Nov. 13 terror attacks in Paris, remained on lockdown as a security precaution. The unidentified person was possibly holding some sort of sign and dressed in white pants when he jumped the fence near the briefing room and West wing areas on a plot of land referred to as “Pebble Beach” at around 2:45 pm.

As recently as last January, a small drone crashed on the South Lawn while a National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employee was operating it from a nearby apartment.
