Newser.com has reported that Marci Anderson Wahl, a persistent but apparently not dangerous White House fence jumper, was arrested early Sunday after scaling a section of the fence near the Treasury building. This was the 38-year-old Everett, Washing, resident's third arrest in less than a week. Last Tuesday night, Wahl was arrested after an attempt to climb the fence left her dangling by her shoelaces. She was ordered to stay away from the White House after pleading not guilty to misdemeanor unlawful entry, but was arrested again about a block away from the White House on Friday night and charged with contempt of court. Anderson, who told officers that she had to speak to President Trump, has no previous arrest record and was not carrying anything dangerous during any of the incidents, CNN reports.
