PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - An Ohio man was detained at Palm Beach International Airport after telling deputies he was heading to Mar-A-Lago to smoke a "joint" with President Trump. 

Tyler Marrone, 27, was detained by Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, based on comments he made about President Trump.  

On April 18, Marrone arrived at the Palm Beach International Airport with the intentions of meeting with President Trump to smoke "a joint with him at Mar-A-Lago, and have a sit down meeting with the President."  

After being flagged as a suspicious person, Marrone was detained and interviewed by the U.S. Secret Service. 

Marrone told them, he "found a credit card and thought it was a gift from God so I bought myself a plane ticket to Florida to go see the President."

The report states he had had full intentions of driving to Mar-A-Lago and walking onto the property to speak directly to the President about "the static and frequency that I constantly hear emanating from my basement and from fans and in my head."  

Authorities say Marrone, showed a preoccupation with governmental agencies and political figures, stating that he has, "been kicked out of the Supreme Court Building in Ohio and several courthouses where I was trying to meet with judges to discuss my thoughts and battleground ideas."  

Marrone met the criteria for the Baker Act, but was also charged for methamphetamine found inside his bag.
