by at . Comments

A D.C. police officer has been taken off a motorcycle escort for White House officials after he allegedly threatened to shoot First Lady Michelle Obama.

Not only that, the officer "then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use," according to a Washington Post report.

The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating and the Secret Service has been told of the alleged Michelle Obama threat, the Post says.

The alleged comment came Wednesday as officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against President Barack Obama.

It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers were taking part in the conversation.

During that conversation,the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady, then used his phone to show the firearm he said he would use.

It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was shown.

An officer overheard the alleged threat and reported it to a police lieutenant at the Division, who immediately notified superiors, the officials said.

The officer has been moved to administrative duty as the incident is being investigated, but the D.C. police warned against a rush to judgment.

MPD Chief Cathy Lanier told WRC-TV/NBC4: "There is conflicting information about what the officer said. ... Internal Affairs will get to the bottom of it."

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray said he hoped that the allegations turned out to be false, noting the current investigations by the MPD and Secret Service.

"There's no room for jokes or frivolity when you're dealing with the first family," Gray said, adding that "additional officers may be disciplined."

@Jonathan- the election is 2.5 months away. How would coming out early benefit Romney? I think this- Romney will unveil his VP no more than a week from Convention. Romney / yes he is rich. His organizers are quiet, so is he. Romney is waiting for when the time is right and he should. Romney has a detailed plan- depth strategy, my goodness he was a CEO, strategy is vital. Romney has it all worked out and ready to execute his plan- when the time is right. The moment the convention is over it will be all hands on board.

Hey guys we can fuss and fight until the end of time. I ask can we stop for a minute and put all our views in a pot and stir it up. Let's not fight or debate. I will apologize abt the tea party comment. The fact is we need leadership that is going to represent us and support us. We can yell racist and say all black people play the race card and also blacks can say whites do too. Let's jst come to common ground. Plz. Email me if u want too. No fake names or anything.

**its not so much that Obama is the best president ever

Ur getting off topic now. But yes I am voting Obama he resonates with me more than mitt. I don't agree with a lot of what mitt says and wants to do. Its not so much Obama is the president ever its more that I overwhelmingly disagree with Republicans on a wide range of issues. Also I can see y ppl would get upset with how Obama spends his free time but he is still a father and husband and a person. He needs down time too and ppl said the same about bush and his vacations and also Clinton. Its just the human condition to think the president must always be working and not playing I do get that. Your last sentence leaves me scratching my head tho. I used Laura as a example because she is Republican and unfortunately ppls opinions are made according to what their specific group (white,black,dems,repubs) think. But I also think she's a beautiful woman and was a great first lady. I wasn't implying harm to her.

What you need to be asking is- can you can live in this state of chaos the next 4 years. To beleive half of what you read is foolish. The real struggle will come after the election. That's when people will "Stand their ground" and bitterness will be fluid. Nobody gives a rats ass about Obama till we see him kicked back, enjoying himself while people are trying to pay their water bill. To be seen out- Basketball-Golfing- Vacations etc. is tacky as shit. Talk about an unattached to reality individual. You are thin skinned and you seem to think that we are not all victims in some way. You earn your stripes and people will not cater to the unappreciative. If the cop did it then it's on him. Laura Bush? I see where your head is- CHELY!
