Obama mistakenly arrested for trying to break into White House

Returning from an overseas trip yesterday, President Obama returned to the White House last night to find the front door stuck and unable to open.  While he and his driver forced open the door, an alert neighbor reported what appeared to be a break-in at the presidential mansion.  Arriving at the scene moments later, police asked Obama to step outside.  When Obama refused, asking, “Why, because I’m a black man in the White House?”, officers arrested the president for disorderly conduct.  Charges against Obama were dropped this morning when papers were produced proving Obama to be a rightful occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, and Obama and Washington D.C. police have issued a joint press release calling the incident “unfortunate and regrettable.”
