The Secret Service had to deal with yet another fence-jumper this evening, but this time they caught the intruder on the North Lawn of the White House, reports the Washington Post. No word yet on the jumper's identity or intention. A Secret Service spokesperson says it was a K-9 unit that caught the man, reports ABC News. The jumper reportedly punched and kicked at one dog before another dog subdued him. He has been taken to a hospital for evaluation. The attempt follows last month's fiasco when a knife-wielding man made it into the White House. (Read more White House stories.)
