On Monday, the Guardian reports, Oregon state police arrested a man who said he was on his way to the Malheur national wildlife refuge for driving under the influence of alcohol. Joseph Stetson, 54, was armed with a pellet gun and said he wanted to “help with killing federal agents.”

The Harney County sheriff’s office released body camera footage on Monday night showing Stetson’s arrest at a gas station. In the video, Stetson claims he is retired Army colonel, saying that he served with the Green Berets in Central America in the 1980s, and that his records were sealed by President Ronald Reagan. He also told troopers that he wanted to be Ammon Bundy’s “personal guard,” the Harney County District Attorney’s office said.

As the police officers begin to arrest him, Stetson gets increasingly more violent. “I will kill all of you. You don’t believe me?” he says. “If I go to jail, when I come out, I will kill you...You friggin’ coward sons of bitches!”

“I’m the last hope!” he says. “Let me go, dammit!”

Stetson claims that he is from New York, but the Guardian reports that he is from Woodburn, Oregon. According to the Oregonian, in 2009, he pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree burglary and menacing.
