The White House and surrounding area are on lockdown after an individual dropped a backpack and tried to jump a bike rack outside the grounds.

The Secret Service says that the individual has been arrested. Lafayette Park and Pennsylvania Avenue between 15th and 17th streets have been closed to traffic. Officials also reportedly moved all corespondents to the briefing room after the building was placed on lockdown.
