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."

@ Daina -Now Obama is out there attacking business owners. Reminding them that they werent successful on their own. What the Hell could he possibly know about running a business? How could a person stay in a business without a budget? Has he ever owned one? Could there be just one- maybe a KoolAid stand? This guys knows no bounds. He will attack anything. Campaigning is not a business.

@james a bremory- 1st thank you for fighting for our country. Regardless of whether we agree w/ you, we should be grateful to all of our soldiers. 2nd - you just said you'd kill the president! Third, I don't agree w/ or like all of what Obama's done. Finally, I do not support Romney, either. I took the time to look up facts on him & what he's done & said (not what the media or ad campaigns say) aren't honest or what I want for the country I love.

What a shame. He is a fucking idiot. Black or white. Has this country came to that point where we will see this country fail because the president is black. That's sad and I'm a former marine. I wish I could get that dumb ass in my cross hairs. It is a all black affair. Get your tuxedos ready tea party members. Serve us our drinks.
