Eric Leonardo Charron of Kansas City was pulled over in Preston County, W.Va., for driving 130 mph in a 70 mph zone when he told the trooper that "special hearing" would tell him to do bad things when he arrived at the White House or the Pentagon, ABC affiliated WCHS reported.

According to a criminal complaint reported by WCHS, Charron had a 9mm handgun, 300 rounds of ammunition and an unspecified amount of gunpowder in the car.


The complaint, filed in Preston County Magistrate Court, states that when a trooper asked if there were explosives in the car, Charron responded “not a whole lot.”

Authorities closed down Interstate 68 near the West Virginia-Maryland border for nearly three and a half hours as the West Virginia State Police Explosive Response Team, the FBI and the Secret Service arrived on scene.

The State Police later said no explosives were found in the car, WCHS reported.

Charron allegedly told investigators that he was traveling to see the president and wanted to give the firearms and explosives to Trump. He reportedly said that he had recently smoked methamphetamine.

The suspect said he had left Kansas City the previous evening and drove without stopping for nearly 13 hours before being pulled over, the outlet reported.

He was arrested and charged with reckless driving and prohibited person in possession of a firearm. Charron is reportedly being held in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on a $10,000 cash only bond.
