A Maryland man jumped the White House fence and ran onto the North Lawn before being subdued Wednesday night.
Dominic Adesanya, 23, stood on the North Lawn around 7.16pm, gesturing and lifting his shirt, before being taken down by K-9 units and subdued by the Secret Service.
His father spoke with ABC 2 and said Adesanya had been arrested at the White House before and that the family had tried to get him help.
On the lawn, Adesanya kicked a Secret Service K-9 unit that ran at him before another dog wrestled him to the ground and he was taken into custody.
'Dogs got him,' a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Reuters after the incident. The White House was put on lockdown for a little over an hour but was not evacuated.
Adesanya's last post to Instagram on Tuesday showed an I Voted sticker captioned 'Voted for this B #ImpeachObama.'
