Seventeen-year old Luke Angel expressed his views on America's president after watching a television programme about September 11 attacks on New York.[Previous TGIS]
Officers visited Mr Angel at his home in Silsoe, Bedfordshire, where he admitted to sending the email, but claimed that he could not recall his exact words.
A spokeswoman said no action was taken after officers concluded that he was "being silly".
"I don't remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk," Mr Angel told The Sun. "But I think I called Barack Obama a pr---. It was silly – the sort of thing you do when you're a teenager and have had a few."
"The police came ‘round took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever," the 17-year-old said.
"I don't really care," he added, but "my parents aren't very happy about it."
