BRYAN, Texas (CBS Houston) — The Obamas might be surprised to learn that a 29-year-old Texan is claiming to be their son.
The Houston Chronicle reports that Johnnie Gooden Jr. told a Chase Bank employee in Bryan that he wanted access to Michelle Obama’s bank account because he was her adopted son.
When authorities arrived, Gooden told them that the first lady contacted him last Friday to tell him she adopted him.
“Mrs. Obama contacted him through Facebook and adopted him, and he was now trying to get money out of her bank account,” Bryan authorities stated.
The Eagle reports that when a background checked was run on Gooden, it was found he was wanted on outstanding charges in Brazos County which included resisting arrest and assault of a public servant.
Bryan police also found marijuana on Gooden when they searched him.
Gooden remains in jail on $52,000 bail and now has a possession of marijuana charge on top of the others.
