US police have arrested a man Scott Stockert, from the state of North Dakota who allegedly plotted to kidnap one of President Obama’s two pet dogs (either Bo or Sunny).
Police in Washington DC found weapons in Mr Stockert’s vehicle, including a shotgun, a rifle and a machete.
Agents say he made several outlandish claims during his arrest, including that he intended to run for president.
He also said he was the son of former President John F Kennedy and actress Marilyn Monroe, according to court documents.
Mr Stockert has been charged with violating the District of Columbia’s gun laws.
