Homeless man scales White House fence

What in the world is going on? I don't know what the temperature is in DC, but I am sure it was hot.

A homeless man was in custody Tuesday night after climbing over the White House fence.

The man was immediately captured by uniformed Secret Service agents, who guard the complex around the clock, said agency spokesman Ed Donovan. He had a backpack that Donovan said was being examined for possible explosive material.
