(Newser) – A woman has been arrested in Hawaii after telling the Secret Service she planned to "blow away" Michelle Obama, officials revealed. Kristy Lee Roshia, 35, was charged with threatening a family member of the president and assaulting a federal agent after her weekend arrest within two miles of the Kailua house where the Obamas plan to vacation this week.

Roshia called the Boston office of the Secret Service last month and vowed to kill the First Lady and Marines, AP reports. Roshia has a history of leaving rambling messages and sending letters and photos of herself to the Secret Service.
