Ted Nugent's remarks draw visit from Secret Service
WASHINGTON (AP) - Ted Nugent says he'll meet with the Secret Service to explain his comments about President Barack Obama that some have interpreted as threatening.
The hard rocker says it will be obvious when he talks to agents on Thursday that he didn't make any threats. Nugent spoke to radio interviewer Glenn Beck about the controversy.
At last weekend's National Rifle Association convention, Nugent referred to what he called Obama's "evil, America-hating administration" and urged NRA members to "to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November."
Nugent also said if Obama were re-elected, "I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
A Secret Service spokesman confirmed that the agency was following-up on the issue but would not give details.
