WASHINGTON – A DC cop who worked as a motorcycle escort for the first family has allegedly threatened to shoot Michelle Obama.
The motorcycle officer allegedly showed fellow cops a cellphone picture of a gun and said he would use it on the first lady, The Washington Post reported.
His alleged threat came in a discussion among members of the officer’s elite Special Operations Division, the report said, citing police officials.
The officer, whose name was withheld, was immediately moved to administrative duties after a cop who overheard him alerted superiors.

“We received an allegation that inappropriate comments were made. We are currently investigating the nature of those comments,” DC police spokesman Araz Alali told the New York Post.
It was unclear how many officers heard the alleged threat or where it might have been uttered.
The incident did not appear to pose an immediate threat to Michelle Obama, officials said.
The administration had no immediate comment.
