A Kentucky man has been arrested and charged with posting a poem threatening President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama on a white supremacist website. The Secret Service said Johnny Logan Spencer Jr. of Louisville wrote and posted the poem, titled "The Sniper," on a site called NewSaxon.org.
A special agent said the poem describes a gunman shooting and killing a "tyrant," later identified as the president. Spencer is scheduled to appear before a judge today for a detention hearing. He's in federal custody charged with making threats against the president and threatening to kill or injure a major candidate for the office of the president.
