Homeless Man Jumps White House Fence During Live CNN Broadcast [VIDEO]

White House fence jumper

On Tuesday, a 41-year-old homeless man scaled the White House fence and was quickly taken into custody by Secret Service.

The incident was captured by a CNN news crew during John King’s live show. The man, who was identified as James Dirk Crudup, can be seen sprawled on the White House lawn as Secret Service move in with rifles drawn.

Crudup was led away in handcuffs and a backpack, which reportedly contained nothing hazardous, was confiscated. The man has been charged with unlawful entry and contempt of court for violating a stay-away order from the White House.
