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."

If you were just as interested in locking the Pitt mob up then maybe you would have some credibility. . You Tea Party haters will grasp any thread of gossip. The gossip will grow and the facts... Economy.... Jobs.... Will try to be ignored by people like you. So quick to judge huh? Bain. Zimmerman etc. Stay in the moment Jude..." Real World" Jude.... Take a break from your script that you sheep have been given..All this Colorado, Republican propaganda. If you want to talk- talk about unemployment numbers. Give us something worth reading instead of your poetic justice, reading your version is like watching paint dry.
