Marrone reportedly said he found a credit card and thought it “was a gift from God,” so decided to buy a plane ticket to Florida to see the president. He told investigators he wanted to drive to Mar-a-Lago to speak to the president. 

Marrone was charged with possession of a Schedule II substance (methamphetamine). He told investigators it was Adderall. 

He was arrested April 20.
