Mentally Ill Woman Reaches Bush’s Front Yard

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) –¬† A mentally ill woman reached the front yard of former president George Bush in Dallas Friday afternoon.

Sources tell CBSDFW.COM that the woman somehow got around the fence and gate that block the Bushes’ North Dallas Street.

The Bushes were not home at the time, but the U.S. Secret Service took the woman into custody for questioning.

She has also been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility by Dallas Police.

The Secret Service has had contact with the woman in the past, sources say, and the agency does not consider the woman a threat.
