Man In Pokémon Gear Charges White House Lawn, Gets Shut Down

Now here’s something you don’t see every day. According to multiple reporters who were on the scene, a man wearing a Pikachu hat and carrying a stuffed Pikachu jumped the White House fence today and ran across the lawn before being apprehended by Secret Service.

The White House was reportedly placed on temporary lockdown, presumably while the Secret Service made sure there weren’t additional people wearing Snorlax or Bidoof outfits waiting as backup.

President Obama, meanwhile, wasn’t even home — according to the AFP, he was out, attending a 9/11 memorial.
