WASHINGTON – The Secret Service said a person was taken into custody Tuesday after they jumped a bike rack in front of the White House fence.

The agency tweeted that the incident happened about 3:30 p.m. along the north fence along Pennsylvania Avenue.

A picture of the scene seemed to indicate that bike racks were being used as a buffer between the street and the fence that surrounds the presidential home.

The identity of the person who was in federal custody was not immediately released.

There were no reports of injuries.
