(Newser) – A man who was injured in the Tucson shooting last weekend was pulled from a town hall meeting yesterday after allegedly threatening a participant, reports the Arizona Daily Star. James Eric Fuller interrupted the meeting, being taped by ABC's This Week, telling a Tea Party leader on stage, "You're dead." "After he made the comment, he began verbalizing, too, pointing to the side of his head making gestures like, ‘You’re crazy’,” said a cop. “He was visibly agitated."

Fuller was involuntarily committed for a mental health evaluation. The 63-year-old naval air veteran was injured in the Jan. 8 shooting, when he was shot in the left knee and hit in the back with bullet fragments. He drove himself to the hospital after being shot.
