On Friday US Secret Service agents in Wasington DC, arrested a man who fought with them while stripping naked outside the White House fence.
A (not so) Secret Service spokesman identified the man as Michel Bechard & confirmed that he had been charged with both assault & indecent exposure (a true double-whammy).
Bechard approached uniformed Secret Service officers at a White House security checkpoint at about 3 p.m. local time & then “proceeded to get fully undressed,” the spokesman said. Officers subdued the man, covered him & sent him to a hospital for minor injuries suffered in the struggle.
A reporter, who was entering the White House through the same checkpoint at the same time, said the man had told the Secret Service officers he had a 3 p.m. appointment with the President & presented his identification. The reporter said the ID was rejected because it was from a foreign country & the man then began undressing while insisting that he had to keep his appointment with Obama.
Everyone hates to be late for a job interview, I guess.
