Toddler breaches White House security

A rogue toddler squeezed through the fence outside the White House Thursday and ended up on the lawn of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. before being apprehended by the Secret Service.

“We were going to wait until he learned to talk to question him, but in lieu of that he got a timeout and was sent on way with parents,” the Secret Service said, according to the White House pool report.

Neither the tot nor the parents were questioned after the brief security breach, according to NBC News, but NBC News’ White House correspondent Chris Jansing reported that the trespass did prompt a brief lockdown at the White House.
