(NEWSER) – A bartender in Ohio with a history of psychiatric problems told police that he planned to kill John Boehner, possibly by poisoning his drink or shooting him, reports WCPO in Cincinnati.

Michael Hoyt, 44, who worked at a country club frequented by Boehner, was indicted on a charge of threatening to murder the House speaker. This snippet from a criminal complaint cited by AP might tell you all you need to know: "Hoyt told the officer he was Jesus Christ and that he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola."

Hoyt reportedly got fired from his job in October and called police soon after to vent about Boehner.
