Apparently, the mouse fell from the ceiling, right on the lap of an NBC correspondent, Peter Alexander.

The mischievous mouse created quite the uproar when it ran around and went behind production equipment and ducking under tables.
In time, the mouse escaped from the press room and ran amok among journalists in the press briefing area. "The most excitement in the White House briefing room for months," a reporter wrote on Twitter.
