WASHINGTON - The Secret Service has apprehended a man who jumped over the White House fence.

CBS News correspondent Mark Knoller reported the unidentified individual jumped the fence about 7:16 along the White House North Lawn and is now in custody. It's the 7th fence jumping incident this year according to the Secret Service.

"The individual was immediately taken into custody on the North lawn of the White House by Secret Service Uniformed Division K-9 teams and Uniformed Division Officers," said Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan. He did not get as close to the doors of the North Portico as the last intruder.
