WHITE HOUSE FENCE JUMPER

THE ARMED TAKEDOWN

CAUGHT ON VIDEO

8/3/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

080311_white_house_v2_videoArmed Secret Service agents swooped in on a homeless man on the White House lawn after he jumped a fence yesterday -- and the whole scene was caught on tape right behind a CNN reporter.

The 41-year-old man -- James Dirk Crudup -- was arrested almost immediately by several Secret Service badasses who moved in with automatic weapons drawn. Crudup was seen crawling around on his belly with a bag nearby as agents approached him.

The scene played out several yards from CNN's John King -- who was seconds away from going live on TV when he noticed the agents with guns drawn.

Crudup was arrested and will reportedly be charged with unlawful entry.

Yeah, they don't screw around! It was daunting when I first visited the White house and saw the snipers on the roof with their guns pointed toward us. Hard core stuff for sure.
