(Newser) – Drunk emailing: Never a good idea, especially not when you're emailing the president. That's what Luke Angel did, and now the British teen is banned from entering the United States. Angel, 17, tells Bedfordshire on Sunday he was "drunk and high" when he penned his missive about a month ago, so he can't remember his exact words, but he knows he called President Obama a "prick." He wrote the letter after watching programs about 9/11 conspiracy theories and researching the Illuminati.

A police spokesperson says Angel's email was "full of abusive and threatening language." The FBI got in touch with England police, who visited Angel and informed him "he wouldn't be able to go to America," the spokesperson says. The teen recalls being told he was "banned from America forever." He says he doesn't really care, though his "parents aren't very happy about it."
