When you’re running from the police, there are a lot of good places to hide. There’s under the bed; a classic hiding space that’s still pretty good, it’d probably be the first place anyone would look, so perhaps that’s not the best idea. There are other good hiding places, like closets, basements, the trunks of cars… but a terrible hiding place would be The White House. After all, it’s only one of the most heavily guarded buildings in the world, and even hopping the fence will get you tackled by guards before you can even make it to the fountain. However, one desperate criminal tried just that. A robbery suspect running from the cops hopped the White House fence.
Of course, he didn’t get too far. Secret Service agents arrested him almost immediately. Fortunately, the robbery suspect didn’t get into the White House for a Chicago-style hot dog dinner, and he didn’t receive injuries in his vain attempt at avoiding the police. He suffered a cut hand and was taken to a hospital for treatment, presumably before heading immediately to jail.
Robbery, running from the cops, and now forcing the most secure building in the world to go on emergency lock-down? Sounds like adding trouble on top of trouble, because I’m sure the Secret Service would have some charges to add to his rap sheet.
