A federal judge in Washington on Tuesday ordered a 30 day mental health evaluation for Omar Gonzalez, the Iraq war veteran charged with jumping the fence of the White House and entering the presidential mansion with a knife last month.

Gonzalez was found "not competent" to stand trial in a brief screening performed while he was detained on charges stemming from the Sept. 19 incident.
