(Scroll down for video) An Alaska courtroom erupted in laughter as a sovereign citizen asked the judge if he will be deported to heaven.

In a video posted to YouTube from the court hearing, 57-year-old Kevin Ramey, who is also known as “Birdman,” told the judge that heaven is his primary residence.

Ramey was in a Dillingham courtroom after being arrested for failing to pay more than $84,000 in child support.

When Judge Pat Douglass asked Ramey if he understood his rights, the former Togiak City Council member replied by talking about his citizenships.

In the recording, Ramey was heard telling the court “It says if you’re not a U.S. citizen, you could be deported. I know I have three citizenships: number 1 in heaven, number 2 in America, number 3 in California. My primary citizenship is of course in heaven. So I was wondering, are you guys going to deport me to heaven?”

The questions got laughs. The judge did not answer his question and set his bail at $1,000.

Ramey, who is the head of Sui Juris Court Angels, a group which adheres to tenets of sovereign citizenry, claimed that the government does not have the authority to charge him with any crime.
