    Secret Service agents arrested a man outside the White House fence Sunday.

    The U.S. Secret Service questioned a man after he threw something near the White House fence on Sunday.

    About 7 p.m., the man tossed an object over a bike rack in front of the fence on Pennsylvania Avenue toward the East Wing, a spokesperson for the Secret Service said. Nothing went over the White House fence, a spokesperson said.

    The man was taken into custody when he went to get the object. 

    Secret Service did not say what the object was, but said it was not hazardous.

    The man has not been identified.
