Investigators said that she did not breach the White House barrier, and that she was immediately taken into custody.

President Donald Trump was hosting Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull inside the White House at the time of the crash.

Last year, investigators said that Ford was arrested twice for trying to climb the White House fence.
