Police and security agents were sent scrambling when a man at the wheel of a sports car inside a gated North Dallas neighborhood ended up on the front lawn of former President George W. Bush.

The incident happened about 8:30pm Wednesday inside the gate on the street where the former president and former first lady Laura Bush live.

A call left with a U.S. Secret Service spokesman by The Associated Press was not returned Wednesday night. KXAS-TV of Dallas and Fort Worth quotes unidentified investigators as saying the man was at a Bush neighbor's house showing off his classic sports car when his gas pedal got stuck.

The Secret Service has detained the unidentified man. Bush spokesman David Sherzer says the Bushes were home but were never in danger.
