Michael R. Hoyt, a former country club bartender in Ohio, has threatened to kill a House Speaker because he believes that the politician was responsible for the Ebola crisis.
Hoyt, has proclaimed that he is in fact Jesus Christ, believes that John Boehner, a member of the House of Representatives is guilty of causing Ebola in this country.
Hoyt who used to work for a country club in West Chester, Ohio has served Boehner in the club where Boehner is a member. Hoyt stated that regrets not poisoning Boehner’s drink while serving him.
Hoyt has been arrested because of the threat and officials have read the court papers where, “Hoyt told the officer he was Jesus Christ and that he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola.”
Hoyt was carrying a loaded Beretta .380 automatic pistol, and was dead set on shooting Boehner before he was caught, and sent to a psychiatric hospital, which he agreed to comply to go to.
Hoyt has a history of mental instability and is awaiting trial, under mental evaluation.
Boehner’s spokesperson talked in the Representative’s place where he stated, “Speaker Boehner is aware of this situation, and sincerely thanks the FBI, the Capitol Police and local authorities in Ohio for their efforts.”
Boehner is going to need a restraining order, and is going to need to protect himself from this man if he is ever released. Hoyt clearly has an out for Boehner and if these threats are serious, Boehner truly has a mentally deranged citizen wanting him dead.
Hoyt had stopped taking his prescriptions two years ago, which has made him unstable. Hoyt even emailed Boehner’s wife where he stated “If I had any intention of hurting Mr. Boehner I could have poisoned his wine at Wetherington many, many times,” so what he might be saying to Boehner’s wife is that he is all talk and did actually plan to murder her husband. No matter the case having this psychological unbalanced man constantly threatening someone’s life is no joking matter.
It is still unclear why Hoyt claimed to be Jesus Christ or why he blamed Boehner for the Ebola outbreak.
