Secret Service gives toddler time out for breaching White House security

Secret Service gives toddler time out for breaching White House security

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Aug 8, 2014

There is one little boy who is going to have a heck of a story when he grows up.

It will go something like this: "Remember that time when I slipped through the fence at the White House and the Secret Service freaked out?"

According to a White House pool report, the toddler squeezed through the fence at about 8:10 p.m. Thursday. The incident caused a "brief commotion among Secret Service agents."

The White House was put on a brief lockdown after the toddler tripped the alarms with his daring act, according to Time magazine.

Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan made light of the incident, saying that the Secret Service put the boy in time out, but decided not to question him until he learned to talk.

The toddler was safely returned to his parents. His identity is not known.
