The US White House has been placed in lockdown after a driver rammed a vehicle into a concrete security barrier.

The white vehicle was jammed up tightly against the fence as officers began examining the auto.

This is not the first time a Tennesseean has caused a disturbance at or near the White House.

Television footage showed a White van or SUV with Tennessee license plates stopped at barricade along 17th Street with its rear window shattered.

Ford was charged with a misdemeanor for "unlawful entry" and was ordered by a D.C. superior court judge to stay away from the White House grounds.

"A few moments ago, I saw three uniformed Secret Service officers running toward the residence".

UPDATE: No law enforcement personnel were injured during the incident involving a vehicle hitting a barrier near the White House.

October 2013: A female dental hygienist from CT made a U-turn after trying to enter a White House checkpoint. The back window of the vehicle is broken but it's unclear how that happened.
