FBI: Bartender Planned to Poison Boehner

Michael Robert Hoyt, a bartender in Deer Park, Ohio, was indicted Jan. 7 for a plot to kill House Speaker John Boehner. Hoyt, 44, who had served Boehner drinks at the Wetherington Country Club for more than five years, allegedly planned to poison Boehner. He called police Oct. 29 and blamed Boehner for his life’s troubles a week after being fired; when officers visited his home a week later, Hoyt “told the officer he was Jesus Christ and he was going to kill Boehner because Boehner was mean to him at the country club and because Boehner is responsible for Ebola.” Officers later searched Hoyt’s home and found weapons and ammo; he has since been taken into custody.
