WASHINGTON — The Secret Service has arrested a man who climbed a bicycle rack outside the White House grounds and charged him in the incident.

Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said the arrest happened at a temporary bike rack on Pennsylvania Avenue on Sunday afternoon. The rack is set back from the White House fence, making it unlikely that anyone could use it to get over.

The Secret Service charged the man with unlawful entry and turned him over to District of Columbia police, Leary said.

Last week, authorities investigated the crash of a small drone on the White House lawn, controlled by a man who said he did not intend for it to go there.
