Michelle Obama- A District of Columbia cop who served in President Obama’s motorcade security detail was busted for threatening to shoot the First Lady.
The unidentified motorcycle cop was discussing threats against the First Family Wednesday with other members of an elite Metro Police Department unit when he produced a cell phone picture of a gun and said he would use it to shoot Michelle Obama, the Washington Post first reported.
Another officer who overheard the statement reported it to superiors — and the U.S. Secret Service was notified.
“We received an allegation that inappropriate comments were made,” Washington police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump told the Daily News Thursday. “We are currently investigating the nature of those comments.”
Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said “we are aware of the incident and we’re taking appropriate follow-up steps.”
The officer fingered for threatening the First Lady has been assigned to desk duty during the investigation. He’s previously protected the First Family and foreign dignitaries.
The purported threat did not pose an immediate danger to the First Lady, officials reported.
