CNN reports that “A New York man armed with a rifle, boxes of ammunition and a machete was arrested Friday after allegedly threatening to kill former President George W. Bush.”

According to a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, a man identified as Benjamin Smith of New York threatened to “kill, kidnap and inflict bodily harm,” on the ex-President.

The report alleges that the US Secret Service was alerted by the man’s mother who found a note written by her son that indicated the man had an attraction to Barbara Pierce Bush, one on the president’s twin daughters. The note read, in part;

“I have to slay a dragon and then Barbara Bush is mine… America is finished. Obama, Etc.”

Using cell phone tracking, Smith was tracked to Manhattan where he was arrested. Smith was in possession of “a loaded .38-caliber rifle, two boxes of ammunition, a container of gasoline and a machete.
