A teenager from Bedfordshire, England, has been banned from ever entering the United States after sending a “threatening” email to the White House.
BBC News reports how a 17-year-old male was investigated after he expressed his dislike of President Barack Obama and the American government. Bedfordshire police, who paid a visit to the boy, said the email contained abusive and threatening language.
“He was told that he wouldn’t be able to go to America,” they added.
A spokeswoman said it was a case of a boy “being silly” and no criminal action was being taken.
“We were informed by the Metropolitan Police and so we went round to see him,” she said. “He said ‘oh dear, it was me.'”
The male told police he could not remember exactly what he had written in the email. A British tabloid quotes him as saying, “I don’t remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk.”
