Texan Claiming To Be Mrs. Obama’s Son Arrested At Bank

BRYAN, Texas, (UPI) — Texas police said they were holding a suspect who allegedly tried to withdraw money from a bank in Bryan while claiming to be Michelle Obama’s adopted son.
Johnnie Gooden, 29, College Station, told a bank teller he had been adopted recently by the first lady, whom he claimed he had met on Facebook and had asked him to take some money out of her account at the Chase Bank branch.
Bank employees said Gooden refused to leave after being told the first lady did not have an account at the bank, so they contacted the authorities.
The Houston Chronicle said police found a bag of marijuana in Gooden’s pocket and learned he had a rap sheet and outstanding warrants for resisting arrest and assaulting a public servant. He was taken away on the warrants and a new arrest for pot possession.
