A Wisconsin police officer called back a man pretending to be an IRS agent after the scammer left a threatening voicemail. In a now viral Facebook video of the exchange, officer Kyle Roder calls the number and asks, “Hello, is this the IRS? It said to call this number, you said I had committed a fraud or something?”
At one point, Roder asks the fake IRS investigator, (who seems unaware he’s the one getting scammed,) for his name and badge number, which the scammer replies, “James Maxwell.” When Roder asks a second time so he could write the name down, the man replied, “James Johnson.” When Roder catches him giving a different name, the man tries to cover up by saying, “my name is James Maxwell Johnson, sir.”
“But you said you’re going to issue a warrant for me and come to my house,” Roder says. “If you don’t have my address, how are you going to do that?” He also asks how much time he has until his arrest, to which the man replies, “Until our shift is over.” The would-be swindler’s attempt to scare Roder into wiring money gets even less convincing when he offers to identify himself with his name and government badge number.

According to the incident report, the latest White House fence jumper was apprehended by Secret Service agents after being discovered dangling on the spired fence from her shoelaces.
The unidentified woman, who is listed as 38 years old, stared at The White House for an extended period of time before making the failed attempt to jump the fence Tuesday at 10:50 PM.
The Secret Service agent who was watching her lost sight for a second and the next thing he knew she had caught her shoelaces on an iron spire and dangled helplessly on the inside of the fence. Agents helped her down before arresting her to keep her from falling on her head. She had a map of the White House, although the incident report does not explain whether the map showed the interior or exterior grounds. h/t tmz
