Prior to trespassing, the Pikachu-costumed Combs told nearby officers he was unarmed (which undoubtedly raised suspicions) before jumping over the barrier and ignoring commands to stop.

Earlier this week, a 36-year-old man named Curtis Combs decided that scaling the fence around the White House and filming himself running across the lawn dressed as Pikachu was the best way to become YouTube famous.

A Kentucky man dressed as the Pokemon character Pikachu is accused of trying to jump the White House fence - all in the name of making a YouTube video.

He also dropped a bag on the public side of the fence, but police later cleared that it wasn't a threat. He told investigators he could not complete a video recording because of the officers' "quick response" according to court documents.

Before White and his friend came through the area on I-75, police said 20 rocks had already been thrown. Investigators believe the rocks may have been taken from another location and thrown off the overpass.

The Secret Service tweeted that a suspicious package was found at the south fence line. Combs was not known to law enforcement, court documents say. Combs has pleaded not guilty to the charge of lawful entry and will be heading to court on November 9th. He said he knew he would be arrested. He made a decision to conduct his scheme because he thought there was a lack of Secret Service coverage, the affidavit says.

Combs told White House officials that he'd like to return to the White House with his son for a tour, though word is out on whether he'll ever be let back in to the President's workplace.
