(Newser) – With President Obama visiting Rhode Island yesterday evening, the Secret Service issued alerts to police in Connecticut in New York to be on the lookout for someone headed their way in a blue Jetta who might be out to harm the president, reports NECN. State police in Connecticut located the car in question in Hamden, reports the Hartford Courant, and Secret Service agents took a male suspect in for questioning, reports NBC Connecticut. But no charges have been filed, and details remain scant.

"We have taken all appropriate investigative steps in this matter, based on the information we received yesterday about a suspicious vehicle and person, " says a Secret Service spokesperson. "There have been no arrests or charges brought in this case at this point." The agency didn't elaborate on what kind of threat prompted the alert.

You Obyshit lovers must be getting an extra few obamabucks in your welfare checks for every "I LOVE YOU" comment you make about the POS. And maybe even another new Obamaphone. Right?

It is imperative that the Secret Service ensures that nothing interferes with Our Dear Leader's punctual arrival at fundraisers and for tee times.
