A 23-year-old man from Maryland, identified as Dominic Adesanya jumped the White House fence and ran onto the North Lawn before being subdued on Wednesday night.
According to the Dailymail, Adesanya stood on the North Lawn around 7.16pm, gesturing and lifting his shirt, before being taken down by K-9 units and subdued by the Secret Service.
His father spoke with ABC 2 and said Adesanya had been arrested at the White House before and that the family had tried to get him help.
Adesanya kicked a Secret Service K-9 unit that ran at him before another dog wrestled him to the ground and he was taken into custody.
‘Dogs got him,’ a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Reuters after the incident. The White House was put on lockdown for a little over an hour but was not evacuated.
Adesanya’s last post to Instagram on Tuesday showed an I Voted sticker captioned ‘Voted for this B #ImpeachObama.’
Other photos show him in action for Stevenson University in track and field, or showing off his physique in shirtless selfies.
Speaking with ABC 2, Adesanya’s father said his son had been arrested at the White House before and that he wanted to speak to the president about how people were out to get him.
He also seemed to have an obsession with the Rothschild family, in particular Nathaniel Philip Rothschild, the British-born Swiss financier.
On a LinkedIn page with zero connections, in place of a job title, he describes himself as an ‘American Slave’ and rants about the Rothschild banking family.
‘Still waiting for Nathaniel Philip Rothschild and his father; Nathaniel Charles Jacob Rothschild-4th Baron Rothschild to let me go,’ his profile states.
Adesanya was reported to be unarmed at the time of his arrest and was taken to the hospital. Two dogs from the security detail were transported to a veterinarian for injuries sustained.
