NBC News Washington- A North Dakota man who allegedly claimed to be Jesus was arrested in D.C. this week after planning to kidnap one of the Obama family’s pets, authorities said.
Scott D. Stockert, 49, was arrested Wednesday night at a Hampton Inn near the Washington Convention Center after Secret Service agents found unregistered firearms in his truck, as well as hundreds of rounds of ammunition, according to authorities.
Agents went to the hotel after getting a “be on the lookout” alert from the Secret Service’s Minnesota field office about the alleged kidnapping plan.
He allegedly told them, “You picked the wrong person to mess with. I will (expletive) your world up.
According to the Secret Service, Stockert, of Dickinson, North Dakota, allegedly planned to take Bo, the older of two Portuguese water dogs owned by the Obamas.
While being questioned by Secret Service agents, Stockert allegedly said he’d planned to go to the Capitol to advocate for $99-per-month health care and to announce he was running for president.
He also told the agents his parents were John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, the court document said.
Agents found an unloaded 12-gauge pump shotgun and a bolt-action rifle in Stockert’s truck, which was parked in a lot around the corner at 5th and K streets NW, according to the document.
Man, I was starting to believe this guy up until the point where he said JFK and Marilyn Monroe were his parents. Sure, he could be Jesus carrying a 12-gauge pump shotgun and bolt-action rifle, or he could be running for president (no one crazy would ever run president), but when he said they were his parents I lost it. No way would JFK and Monroe ever had a kid, he was married to Jackie Kennedy remember? Nonetheless, bold move bringing loaded guns to the white house to advocate for cheap healthcare. I only wish we could get to hear his other presidential platforms. If he is that bold to go after Obama’s dog, he is the type of person I want on my side.
