‘Dogs got him’: White House intruder jumps fence while Obama was in residence

A man who jumped the White House fence Wednesday put up a real dogfight before finally being taken down by the Secret Service.

According to MSN.com, Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Md., was arrested shortly after leaping the fence on the North Lawn of the White House about 7:15 p.m. The White House was put on lockdown until about 9 p.m.

“Dogs got him, a Secret Service spokesman said.

The dogs he punched and kicked were taken to a veterinarian for treatment.

Unlike previous recent incidents where President Obama was not at home, the latest security breach came shortly after Obama attended a meeting in the Oval Office, the New York Daily News reported.

The incident also took place the same day as an attack on the Canadian Parliament complex in Ottawa. That attack, which killed one soldier and wounded three other people, was carried out by a Canadian who recently converted to Islam, according to Fox News.

The attacker was shot dead by parliament’s sergeant-at-arms, Fox reported.

The White House intruder had a history of mental problems and arrests, his father told CNN.
