The White House Resumes Normality After Mysterious Object Was Found On North Lawn
The White House is out of harm's way.
The White House has recently returned to normal after being held in a lockdown early Monday (May 30) afternoon, according to U.S. News.
Robert Hoback, a Secret Service spokesman, says someone at around 12:15 p.m. threw a metal object over the north fence on Pennsylvania Avenue. Afterwards, the individual was reportedly arrested without resistance. Hoback did not identify the culprit, but a witness said they saw a woman being placed in handcuffs.
The lockdown took place shortly after President Barack Obama came back from a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. A hazardous materials response unit and fire trucks were present at the scene to ensure nothing dangerous made it over the fence. Hoback says the danger results came back negative.
