WASHINGTON (BHN) -The D.C. motorcycle patrol escort who was suspended for allegedly threatening to kill First Lady Michelle Obama has been reinstated.
A thorough investigation indicated the officer, who wears glasses and suffers from poor eyesight, never actually mentioned the First Lady, but referred to “that thing trying to get close to the President.”
“It seems the officer thought Mrs. Obama was a “shape-shifter or Bigfoot-type creature,” and posed a clear threat to the President,” said police department spokesman Mike Hagman. “He planned to kill it the next time he saw it. It was an understandable mistake.”
The patrol officer was reportedly fitted with new glasses, and trained to differentiate between First Lady Michelle and other similar non-human species.
My comments: I’ve made the same mistake more than once – no harm, no foul!
