Around the Town - Latest White House fence jumper has connection to Stevenson University, father says

“He had done it before. … He didn’t get that close,” the father told the affiliate. “He didn’t cross the fence. He was at the gate, fussing at the people, wanting to talk to the President to tell the President about his situation.”

His father said his son has been experiencing a downward mental health spiral after he was prohibited from trying out for a college football team at Stevenson University in Westminster, Md. He dropped out of school in November. Doctors have diagnosed him with paranoia and schizophrenia and have prescribed antidepressants and other drugs, but his father says has been refusing to fill the order.

His father also said he was fighting the dogs because he thinks “he’s got to prove he’s this phenomenon athlete.”
