Secret Service Closes Case on Ted Nugent’s Remarks

NYDN: After meeting with rocker Ted  Nugent on Thursday, the Secret Service says its probe into what he had to  say about President  Barack Obama is over. Last weekend during a National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis,  Nugent rallied support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and said of  the Obama administration: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their  heads off in November.” He also said he would be “dead or in jail by this time  next year” if Obama is re-elected.

That drew the attention of the Secret Service. Nugent said he discussed the  matter with two agents on Thursday while in Oklahoma. “The issue has been resolved,” agency spokesman Brian  Leary said in a statement. “The Secret Service does not anticipate any  further action.”
