Texas Man Indicted Over Threat To Shoot The President

EL PASO (March 12, 2013)—William Mose Tucker, 20, of El Paso, was held without bond Tuesday after a federal grand jury indicted him in a threat to shoot President Barack Obama during the inauguration.

Tucker is next due in court on March 28.

His attorney is seeking bond.

He says Tucker doesn't own any weapons or ammunition and there's no evidence he planned to carry out the alleged threat.

Documents show Tucker told someone in September 2012 that he planned to shoot Mr. Obama.

Tucker was indicted Jan. 16 on a charge of making a threat against the president.

He was arrested four days later in in Lawton, Okla., while selling magazines.

Mr. Obama's inauguration was the next day.
