Man Who Jumped White House Fence Charged with Assaulting Four-Legged Officers

By Steve Neavling

A man who jumped the White House fence and kicked a Secret Service K-9 in the snout and punched another of the agency’s dog was charged with felonies in the attacks.

The New York Times reports that felony charge were filed against Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Maryland, for assaulting law enforcement officers. In this case, the victims were Jordan and Hurricane.

“All that’s hurt on the dog is its pride,” a uniformed Secret Service officer said Thursday afternoon as he stood guard outside the White House. “If you got kicked in the snout, your pride would be hurt too.”

The dogs stopped the fence jumper after some embarrassing security blunders in the past few months.

The dogs were taken to a veterinarian for treatment of minor injuries.
