(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of making threats after allegedly plotting to kill U.S. President Barack Obama with a slingshot, police in Wisconsin said.
La Crosse police said that they have arrested 55-year-old Brian Dutcher, after being accused of making written and verbal threats against Obama during his visit to the area.
Dutcher of Tomah, told a security guard at the La Crosse Public Library and wrote on Facebook that he planned to shoot Obama during the visit.
During an interview with a Secret Service agent, Dutcher said that he was going to use a slingshot to kill Obama because he could accurately hit his target with such a device.
Dutcher was charged with making a threat against the president. He was sent to a mental health facility, where he made threats against staff members and accused a nurse of helping a tyrant.
Dutcher revealed that he had hunted animals using the slingshot and could kill a man with it just like the biblical story of David and Goliath.
A slingshot was found in Dutcher’s car.
