Caputo Said “Alright, Let’s Do This” Before Jumping the Fence, According to Witnesses

A man draped in an American flag jumped the White House fence while President Obama and the first family ate their Thanksgiving meal.  Joseph Caputo, the trespasser, wore shoes decorated with the flag and gloves.  He also had a folder with him, which the Secret Service took.  The contents of the folder are unknown.

Caputo was arrested and is now facing criminal charges.  The Secret Service has come under fire recently for allowing multiple people to jump the fence and land on the lawn.  One man even ran into the White House and all the way through to the East Room before finally being apprehended last year.
