Man Being Held In Florida Charged With Threatening To Assassinate Obama
Raymond Hunter Geisel was ordered held without bail Thursday at a brief court hearing.
The Secret Service says Geisel made the threat during a training class for bail bondsmen in Miami in late July. Another tipster said Geisel also threatened President George W. Bush.
A search of Geisel’s SUV and hotel room uncovered a loaded handgun, knives, dozens of rounds of ammunition, body armor and a machete. The SUV was wired with emergency lights.
Geisel told the Secret Service he was originally from Bangor, Maine. He contended he made no threat against either Obama or the president.
