A man was arrested at a Dairy Queen after entering the restaurant with a loaded handgun, according to Pennsylvania authorities.

The man was first seen driving erratically on a freeway in Delmont on Saturday, Sept. 10, prompting another driver to call 911, Delmont police said in a news release.

He walked into and out of Dairy Queen — wearing a yellow safety vest and rainbow wig — with a gun in his hand, authorities said.

An officer arrived and found several people inside the restaurant, the statement said. As the man exited the restaurant, officers arrested him.

The man told officials he was “undercover” and “working to restore (Donald) Trump to President King of the United States,” the statement said. He told officers he was armed to “kill Democrats and Liberals” and protect himself from “drug dealers”.

He carried a handgun with a round cartridge and more ammunition in his pocket, police said.

In his vehicle, authorities found two other handguns and a total of 62 rounds.

Police said the man faces felony charges, but did not specify the charges when asked by McClatchy News.

Delmont is about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
