Woman `Threatened To Murder` Michelle Obama
A woman accused of threatening to "blow away" Michelle Obama on the family`s Christmas trip to Hawaii has been arrested by the US Secret Service.
Kristy Lee Roshia called the Boston office of the Secret Service and told them "I will kill Michelle Obama", according to a Secret Service document.
During the same call she threatened to "blow away" the First Lady, the Affidavit states.
The 35-year-old told agents she knew where the Obama family would be staying when they visited Honolulu for the festive season.
She was arrested just two miles from the house they had booked.
Roshia has been charged with threatening a family member of the president and assaulting a federal agent after being arrested.
She is alleged to have struck an officer in the face and arms while the officer tried to detain her.
Roshia has a history of making rambling telephone calls to the Secret Service office in Boston, according to the affidavit.
As early as 2004 she told the agency that "although her mission is to assassinate the president, she has no desire to hurt him," the affidavit said.
The Boston Secret Service office received a letter which included pictures of Roshia and a love letter she had written to a non-existent Secret Service agent on November 9 this year.
She made her alleged threat to kill Michelle Obama the next day.
Barack Obama has said he will not leave for the family Christmas break until his controversial healthcare overhaul is passed by the Senate.
