The man arrested last weekend after claiming to have a bomb in his car at a White House checkpoint reportedly believes he spoke telepathically to President Trump.
Sean Patrick Keoughan, 29, was arrested after driving up to a White House checkpoint late Saturday and telling security officials he had a bomb in the vehicle. Later, he said: "This is a test."
Keoughan reportedly said he was telepathically summoned to meet with the president, The Washington Times reported.
He told law law enforcement when being questioned that he "had a very large, heavy bag in the trunk of his car with an asteroid in it," according to the affidavit.
“According to Keoughan, the communication occurs through a process called ‘Think Talk,’ which is a process that occurs in his mind and allows him to communicate with high-level officials such as President Trump, the Secret Service, and Delta Force,” Secret Service Agent Jason Verdejo wrote in the sworn affidavit.
“Keoughan told agents that the asteroid was made of the heaviest metal known to man, and he stated that he obtained it from his father through a ‘wormhole.'"
Keoughan was charged with making a false bomb threat and unauthorized use of a vehicle. He was ordered by a judge Monday to get a mental competency exam.
Keoughan went up to the White House checkpoint twice on the night he was arrested. He first told security he was supposed to meet with the president. The second time he approached the checkpoint, he claimed to have a bomb.
He told law enforcement he was a "peaceful hippie" who doesn't have weapons and wasn't looking to hurt anyone.
The arrest comes after another incident earlier this month when a man, identified as Jonathan Tran, was able to jump over three difference fences around the White House.
He was able to jump one of the fences in part because Secret Service took down alarm sensors on the area of one fence he scaled, according to The Washington Examiner.
The alarm sensors had been removed along an area of fence line after increasing the height of the barrier. The move was taken following other attempts to jump the fence.
