A military jet and helicopter swooped alongside a small plane Saturday to and escorted it away from a temporary restricted flight zone above Florida’s eastern coast, where President Obama was spending the holiday weekend with friends, officials said.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mike Humphreys said an F-16 jet and a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter intercepted the plane just before noon and forced it to land a few minutes later at Witham Field in Stuart, Fla.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said in a statement that they’re investigating whether the Cessna 152 entered the restricted area above Florida’s Treasure Coast. No other information about the Cessna was immediately released.

A description of temporary flight restrictions posted on the FAA's website said the section of Florida airspace will be closed until Monday for "VIP Movement."

Aboard Air Force One on Friday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to a reporter's question about the president's "guy's weekend" by confirming that Obama was looking forward to spending the President’s Day holiday weekend with a group of friends in Florida.

“I’m sure they’ll take advantage of the opportunity to play some golf,” Earnest said.

He's golfing with Tiger Woods, and he's got the airspace all fucked up over the East coast of Florida. I wonder if Tiger got them a couple of blond South Beach hookers back at the ho-tell. Hopefully the Secret Service boys don't take this behavior as carte blanche again to go party it up.

You mean and "neglect" his security? Yeah, hopefully that never happens again.
