WASHINGTON (CNN) — In the second security incident at the White House in as many days, an individual failed to stop at the entrance to the White House complex while driving his vehicle, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said.

The man was taken into custody, the Secret Service said.

The incident happened at the entrance at 15th and E Streets, where the driver did not stop when the Secret Service ordered him to do so, Leary said.

The man’s car did not hit the barriers at the entrance, and he then exited the vehicle, Leary said.

On Friday night, a man who jumped the fence at the White House made it through the North Portico doors into the building before he was captured, the Secret Service said.
