OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma man, who threatened to kill three U.S. presidents, shows up outside the White House this week and comes face to face with the secret service.

Turns out, Archie Monroe Glass Jr. left a half-way house in Oklahoma City without permission.

Court documents reveal Glass was able to walk up to the White House gate despite not being allowed to leave the state.

Glass served five years in federal prison for threatening to assassinate Presidents Obama, Bush, and Clinton.

It all started in February 1996, Glass told a psychotherapist, "He wanted to get in the history books like John Hinkley and wanted to shoot Bill Clinton and Hilary."

According to court documents, he made similar threats throughout the 90's, and was charged at least three times with threatening to assassinate a president.

He threatened harm against Bush more than once.

In 2008, Glass sent a letter from his prison cell in El Reno to President Bush, saying, "Mr. President, I'm going to murder you very soon by shooting you in the head and will do the very same thing to the winner of the November Presidential election."

It's the same prison the president visited in July. But during that visit, Glass was at the Carver Center, a halfway house near downtown Oklahoma City.

In the most recent court filings, U.S. Marshals found a bus ticket showing Glass left Oklahoma City May 18, and arrived in Washington D.C. May 20.

When asked if he had been to D.C., Glass replied, yes.

Then, on August 18, Glass made a return visit to the White House! This time he was caught by the secret service and taken to a mental health facility.

Glass will appear in federal court in Oklahoma City early next month for violating his probation. The U.S. Attorney's Office declined to comment on this case telling us it's too premature.
