A North Carolina State University student has been jailed after police accused him of climbing over a wall surrounding the governor's residence in Raleigh.
State Capitol Police say 21-year-old Alan Connor Herndon was arrested about 2 a.m. Friday after he was seen scaling a wall and entering the Executive Mansion grounds. Police said Herndon did not resist arrest.
Gov. Beverly Perdue's spokeswoman said the governor was at the mansion at the time of the arrest.
Herndon was charged with first-degree trespassing and was in the Wake County Jail on Friday morning with a $500 secured bond. A jail official said Herndon had no attorney listed and couldn't receive messages.
The N.C. State University online directory lists Herndon as a junior from Blowing Rock.
