Hannah Roemhild, 30-year-old woman from Connecticut, was arrested for breaching security and firing a gun at Mar-a-Lago last week, Jan. 31.

Roemhild was apparently an opera singer with a very long history of mental illness. The exact mental illness Roemhild was suffering from has not been documented or publically announced but she reportedly has a “well-documented history of mental illness.” She is “unfortunately suffering from severe mental illnesses,” according to her attorney.

Roemhild broke through two security checkpoints near Mar-a-Lago, one of President Donald Trump’s residencies in West Palm Beach, Florida. There was a 6 mile chase that started at around 11:30 AM at the hotel Breakers Palm Beach. Roemhild was acting “irrationally” and “doing some kind of dance” on top of a car said Rick Bradshaw, Palm Beach County Sheriff.

She had a rented jeep and after refusing to talk to the trooper, her window was smashed in and she then sped off. The chase ended at a hotel in West Palm Beach where a Florida Highway Patrol trooper tackled her to the ground.

Fortunately, the president and with his family were not at Mar-a-Lago at the time.
