    DC - Secret Service investigates after man jumps White House fence, reaches doors

    (Reuters) - A man jumped over the White House fence and made it to the front doors of the executive mansion before being apprehended on Friday, sparking an evacuation within the complex shortly after President Barack Obama departed for the weekend.

    Omar J. Gonzales, a 42-year-old white male from Texas, made it onto the grounds at 7:20 EDT, a U.S. Secret Service spokesman said. Gonzales ignored commands to stop and was ultimately caught, unarmed, just inside the North Portico doors of the White House, one of the building's main entrances.

    The intruder's ability to get so far on the grounds before being apprehended is very unusual for a complex that is heavily guarded by Secret Service officers and snipers. He was arrested and taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation.

    The Secret Service is looking into how a Texas man was able to get inside one of the world's most secure buildings, after apprehending an intruder who had scaled a fence and opened a door to the White House last night. The man was not armed.

    That's frightening!

    OT, but I get pretty sick of the PC stuff. Who do they think they're fooling when they say "Omar J. Gonzales, a 42-year-old white male from Texas?"
