A bunch of years ago - late 1980's iirc - a man with an expired temple
recommend (he had been ex'd, I think) forced his way into the D.C. Temple
with a gun and held a couple of temple workers hostage for a few hours.  He
eventually surrendered and the story made the news.  The temple was closed
for a day or two.  If I remember right, they just quietly rededicated that
part of the temple.  I'm not sure, though...I was a teenager at the time
and not much was said about how they handled it.  Does anyone else remember?

Most of the time, entering the temple unworthily is considered
significantly different from defiling the temple (a premeditated act which
leaves physical evidence).  Entering the temple unworthily defiles the
person, not the temple.
