LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville woman is in hot water after police say she threatened President Obama and the Secret Service.

According to the arrest warrant, Tammy K. Wadley, age 27, was at the Heine Brothers' Coffee shop on Bardstown Rd., near the Watterson Expressway, on Thursday just before 1 p.m., when she allegedly began making comments about blowing up the building and killing everyone in it.

When a police officer approached her and demanded to know why she would say such things, Wadley allegedly responded that she was threatening people "because it is fun."

Police say she was threatening coffee shop patrons and staff as she was being escorted from the business, and then proceeded to make threats against the Secret Service and President Obama.

Secret Service was notified, according to an arrest report.

Wadley was arrested and charged with terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct. Both are misdemeanor charges.
