An Ohio man has been arrested after flying out to Florida with the intention of smoking a joint with President Donald Trump.

Tyler Jon Marrone, 27, of Columbus, Ohio, flew out to Palm Springs International Airport on April 18, hoping to meet up with the president at his Mar-a-Lago resort, reports WPTV-TV.

According to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit, Marrone purchased his plane ticket after finding a credit card and "thought it was a gift from God,” reports WPLG.

Deputy Kathleen Zeranski's said Marrone had "full intentions of driving to Mar-a-Lago and walking onto the property" to speak to the president as well as "smoking a joint with him.”

Marrone told police he wanted to speak to Trump about “the static and frequency feedback that I constantly hear emanating from my basement and from fans and in my head.”

He was arrested at the airport after being flagged up by the U.S. Secret service following comments he made about Trump.

After being stopped by authorities, he was also found to be in possession of a white substance which later proved to be methamphetamine.

Marrone told officers he was carrying "self-prescribed Adderall in his bag” and was arrested for drug possession.

Marrone was found to meet the criteria for Florida's Baker Act law, which means he can be involuntarily committed for a mental health assessment, reports KFOR-TV.
