The Secret Service on Monday was investigating two security breaches at the White House.

On Sunday night, someone stepped over a bike rack positioned outside the White House fence. On Monday morning, someone tried to walk through a gate while someone else was leaving. Both people were arrested, and an all-clear was given at the White House.

Prominent security breaches forced the resignation of the former Secret Service director, Julia Pierson, last fall. President Barack Obama appointed Joseph Clancy director last month.
