WASHINGTON, DC —   A California man charged with jumping the White House fence over the weekend is back in court.

26-year-old Jonathan Tuan-Anh Tran’s bond hearing is scheduled for Monday at 1:45 p.m. in the U.S. District Court federal court.

He’s been charged with entering restricted grounds while using or carrying a dangerous weapon. He faces up to 10 years in prison. Court records say Tran was carrying two cans of Mace, as well as, a U.S. passport, an Apple laptop, a book by President Trump, and a letter written to Mr. Trump when he was arrested.

The Secret Service says, security video shows Tran jumping a fence near the Treasury Building. According to court documents, Tran told the Secret Service he’s a friend of the president and he had an appointment.

Over the weekend, Trump praised the Secret Service response and referred to Tran as a “troubled person.”
