Federal agents detained an armed man outside of the Dallas home of  President George W. Bush,  reports Reuters. The man had a weapon in his car but was released after being questioned on Tuesday, a spokesman for the US Secret Service told Reuters.

The unidentified man told agents and local police that he was “spiritually told to pick up a package at the Bush home,” according to Reuters. He had a permit to carry the gun agents found in his car.

The former president and his wife were both away from home at the time of the incident, Reuters reported.

A motorist tooling around an upscale Dallas neighborhood Wednesday night got an unexpected greeting from U.S. Secret Service agents when his muscle car accidentally hopped the curb and ended up on the lawn of a certain prominent person.

Ed Donovan, a Secret Service spokesman, said the man was driving sometime around 7:30 p.m. to visit a friend in the Preston Hollow neighborhood in Dallas when he apparently lost control of the car, which jumped onto the lawn of former President George W. Bush.  Donovan said it appeared the gas pedal was stuck.

Secret Service agents, who are on the scene 24/7, quickly responded, as did the Dallas police, Donovan said. The man was interviewed and was allowed to go. Donovan said there was no indication the man intended to harm the President and his wife Laura, who were home at the time. There was no damage to the home.

Media reports indicated the car was a Mercury Cougar.

WASHINGTON — The indiscriminate use of a popular online data-sharing technology has led to the disclosure of sensitive government and personal information — including FBI surveillance photos of a Mafia hit man, lists of people with HIV, and motorcade routes and safe-house locations for then-first lady Laura Bush, a congressional panel was told on Wednesday.

The information is often exposed inadvertently by people who download the technology to share music or other files, not realizing that the “peer-to-peer” software also makes the contents of their computers available to other users, experts said.
