A heavily armed man was arrested at a Washington hotel on Wednesday for allgedly plotting to kidnap one of the First Family's dogs.

According to Yahoo!, Scott Stockert, 49, who caimed to be Jesus, was found by the Secret Service possessing unregistered firearms in his truck. He also had hundreds of rounds of ammunition, a machete, and a club.

The Secret Service's Minnesota field office heard of the alleged kidnapping scheme and alerted agents to "be on the lookout." According to the report, Stockert, a North Dakota native, planned to abduct Bo, one of the two Portuguese water dogs owned by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and the first daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama.

Court documents state that Stockert was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm and was ordered to stay away from the White House and the Capitol, completely. He was released on Friday (Jan. 8) to a "high-intensity supervision program" and was specifically ordered not to possess any firearms "or other dangerous weapons, either real or imitation."

To add insult to injury, Stockert didn't only claim to be Jesus — He also told agents that his parents were John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe.
