White House Locked Down After 66 Year Old Jumps Fence

The Secret Service on Friday arrested a man it said had scaled a White House fence with a package and falsely claimed he had a bomb. The incident led to a security lockdown around the White House for more than three hours.

Secret Service officials used a water cannon to destroy the package, which contained no dangerous materials.
