US President and family in security scare

A scare for America’s first family as they celebrated Thanksgiving.

A man draped in an American flag and carrying an envelope climbed over the fence at the White House, sparking a lockdown.

He was stopped by the Secret Service and taken into custody.  There is no word yet on what was in the envelope.
