A North Dakota man was arrested after he allegedly planned to abduct a first dog of the United States.


Washington, D.C., police investigated Scott Stockert after receiving a tip from the Secret Service that he had traveled to the nation’s capital to abduct Bo Obama, according to NBC News.

Stockert was set to appear in D.C. Superior Court on Friday on firearms charges after he was taken into custody Wednesday at a hotel near the Washington Convention Center, the network reported.

Stockert reportedly admitted to police that he had an unloaded shotgun and rifle and ammunition for the weapons in his pickup truck.

A police report also said authorities found a machete and a billy club.  

The North Dakota man claimed his parents were John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, court documents said, and he later claimed he was Jesus Christ, according to NBC News.

Stockert reportedly told police he came to the capital to announce his campaign for president and advocate for a $99 per month healthcare plan.

“You picked the wrong person to mess with,” Stockert allegedly told police.
