A man was placed into police custody on Friday after he stripped nude in front of a White House security gate.

"Michel Bechard approached uniformed division officers at the White House and he proceeded to get fully undressed," a spokesman for the Secret Service told CNN. "As uniformed division officers attempted to subdue him, he assaulted a uniform division officer and he was taken into custody."
