WASHINGTON (AP) - August 2, 2011 (WPVI) -- A homeless man is in custody after climbing over the White House fence tonight.
The man was immediately captured by uniformed Secret Service agents.
Agency spokesman Ed Donovan says the man had a backpack that's being examined for possible explosive material.
