11-28-13 wi man arrested for threatening president

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Federal agents have arrested a Wisconsin man after he allegedly threatened to shoot President Barack Obama.  According to court records, the man stated during a visit to the Richland Center post office on Oct. 15 that, quote, "if President Obama was here I would shoot him right there and kill him right now."  U.S. Secret Service agents interviewed the man the next day. They said he refused to recant his threat, repeated it in different words and made a number of other threats against Obama. They also said further investigation revealed he had recently lost his wife and is displacing his grief with anger toward individuals the Secret Service protects.  Court records indicate the man was arrested Friday.
