ORANGE COUNTY, Fla.
The Secret Service is investigating a threat made as President Barack Obama visited Central Florida on Thursday.
WFTV was there as deputies and the Secret Service surrounded an Orange County apartment complex.
The suspect was taken into custody, strapped to a gurney and hauled off to the hospital to be evaluated after allegedly making a threat against the President of the United States or former President Bill Clinton, both of whom visited Central Florida on Thursday.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office told WFTV the Secret Service asked for help tracking down the man after it received a credible verbal threat.
Just after 6 p.m. authorities moved in at the Winter Park Pointe apartments, which is only about four miles down Semoran Boulevard from the Cuban restaurant where Obama made a surprise stop.

I “feel” so much safer.
He looks like one angry guy. I wonder which one of Obama’s broken promises pushed him over the edge.
probably called the obamanation a sissy which constituted a threat to his political health.
I bet as they were wheeling him away he yelled “Now don’t be messing with my Chik-Fil-A!” He just had that disgusted look in his eyes that I have been seeing for days!
Was he carrying a full place setting of flatware?
if they would release his name i could probably find out that he is a tea party member, somewhere somehow.
probably had a zillion guns also.
whoops, checked the link.
Sounds like a crazy. Are we absolutely certain this wasn’t Harry Reid??
Lord save our nation from sympathy that could be generated by an idiot and let the nation dump the Marxist at the ballot box.
“Sources say the suspect threatened to stop paying taxes.”
The patches are meds?
He's trying to quit smoking?
The firing squad is scheduled for Tuesday morning at 11:00.
Maybe he got tired of waiting for his Oboma money. He thought he was going to get rich. Isn't that what hope and change was suppose to mean?
Looks like Emmett Smith, Dallas Cowboys, Number 22.
Is his jersey hanging on the end of the gurney?
Dang! I hope it isn’t Emmett. I always liked him.
It is unknown whether he made the threat in person or called it in.
I understand he called the toll free threat hotline.
He didn’t get his food stamps on the 2nd this month..
Wonder upset the man? I guess the media suddenly lost interest in finding out upon seeing the man. Friends and neighbors know who he is and can get that information to the media. VERY interesting that such is not happening. Hmmmm.....
Yes. Very interesting. Maybe the local talk radio (Bud Hedinger) will get more information on News Talk 540 am here in Orlando. He comes on about 6am.
It could be a new type of targeting system for a drone strike. Poor guy was likely added to Obama’s kill list.
