WASHINGTON - Charges were pending on Monday against an intruder who climbed the White House fence on Sunday night, the Secret Service said.

The individual was quickly arrested by uniformed officers after going over the fence on the south side of the presidential home-office at about 10:25 p.m. EDT on Sunday, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said.

The fence-climber was not immediately identified.

Security at the White House has been a concern after a series of incidents. Last September an intruder with a knife scaled the fence and ran into the residence before being stopped and in January a man crashed his drone on the White House grounds.
