The Secret Service arrested a Virginia man for allegedly making repeated death threats against President Barack Obama, authorities say.
Christopher Hecker of Waynesboro was arrested this week, and is being detained pending an evaluation, The (Staunton) News Leader reported.
Hecker allegedly sent an e-mail to WVTF Public Radio in Roanoke April 19 with a subject line saying: “I am going to kill the president of the United States.”
An affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Harrisonburg said the FBI traced the e-mail account to Hecker, pegging him for investigation.
