The 23-year-old armed man who was arrested Sunday at a North Carolina airport after President Obama took off appears to be harmless and was nothing more than a “cop wannabe’, a law enforcement source told ticklethewire.com.

Airport police at the Asheville Regional Airport in North Carolina on Sunday arrested Joseph Sean McVey, 23, of Coshocton, Ohio, who was armed and showed up at the airport parking lot just after President Obama had departed, the Associated Press reported.

Authorities say the man had come to see the president and had police gear in his car including a siren and flashing lights, AP reported. He also had an invalid driver’s license.

But a law enforcement source said the man uttered no threats and was just into being a cop. He supposedly had more than two dozen antennas on his car.

AP reported that he was charged with a going armed in terror of the public, a misdemeanor.
