Intense Video: Another Man Jumps White House Fence, Violently Attacks Secret Service K-9

"Dog got him."

Another man jumped the White House fence on Wednesday, but he was ultimately stopped with the help of a U.S. Secret Service K-9, a spokesman told CNN’s Jim Acosta.

“Dog got him,” the spokesman said.

However, new video footage released on Wednesday night appears to show the suspect kicking, punching and body-slamming the Secret Service K-9 before agents could arrest him. The dog's condition wasn't immediately known.

The incident came about a month after a previous White House fence jumper sprinted across the same lawn, past armed uniformed agents and entered the mansion before he was felled in the ceremonial East Room and taken into custody.

That embarrassing Sept. 19 incident preceded the disclosure of other serious Secret Service breaches in security for President Barack Obama and ultimately led to Julia Pierson's resignation as director of the agency after 18 months on the job.

The unidentified man was being taken to a local hospital, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said, without elaboration.

After Pierson resigned, an agent who once led Obama's protective detail came out of retirement to lead the Secret Service until Obama names a new director, pending the completion of internal and independent reviews of agency practices.

This week, a federal judge delayed the arraignment of Omar Gonzalez, the individual charged in September's fence-jumping incident, because of questions about his mental fitness to stand trial.

Gonzalez has been indicted on several charges, including of carrying a knife into the White House and assaulting two Secret Service officers.
