MARBLEHEAD, Ohio - Marblehead police say a man claiming to be a distant relative of President Dwight Eisenhower threatened to kill President Barack Obama over the weekend while dining at a cafe.
A police report notes the suspect and a woman came into Avery's Café on March 23 and told an employee that they were headed to Washington D.C. to "make some things straight."
WItnesses said the man was going to "kill Obama and take him down" so they wrote the couple's Colorado license plate down and called police.
Officers arrived to the cafe and found the couple who confirmed the vehicle to be theirs.
Marblehead police flagged down a Border Patrol agent driving by and asked for help. Border Patrol contacted the U.S. Secret Service who said they wanted to speak with the couple.
Marblehead police arrested the two and searched their car. Inside they found five cellphone batteries, four pocket knives and what appeared to be a bottle with marijuana seeds in it.
While patting down the woman, she told the Border Patrol agent there was a broken down .22 caliber rifle in the trunk of the car. Authorities found it and noted it had no trigger, but did have one hollow point bullet in the chamber.
A further search turned up other rounds of ammunition and six pill bottles with Oxycodone.
Interestingly, authorities also found documentation with proof that the suspect was a distant relative of the President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The man stated numerous times he was the illegitimate son of the late president.
Border Patrol was asked by the U.S. Secret Service to hold the couple and meet at headquarters to be interrogated by them.
