Pikachu puts the White House on lockdown
A man dressed as Pikachu has been placed in custody after trespassing the White House.

Earlier today the White House was reportedly put on lockdown after a man in possession of a Pikachu mask and stuffed a toy jumped the gates and made his way on to the lawn.

Images have surfaced of the currently unidentified man apprehended on the ground with guns pointed at him in what members of the press described as a “scary few moments”.

President Barack Obama was not home at the time of the incident, as he was attending a 9/11 memorial service.
