WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The area around the Ellipse and the National Tree outside the White House was evacuated for some time on Sunday due to police activity.
Just after 11:30, Secret Service Uniformed Division Officers say they were attempting to speak with a man when he crossed over a barrier and into a restricted area near 17th Street and E Street, NW.
Secret Service says the man was immediately apprehended by officers and placed under arrest for Unlawful Entry.
Video taken by FOX 5 DC photographer Craig Little showed officials with a person in custody, as sirens were going off within a restricted area outside of the White House.
They say he was taken to DC police second district for processing.
