Man indicted in Texas for alleged Obama threat

EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A federal grand jury in West Texas has indicted a 20-year-old man who allegedly threatened to shoot President Barack Obama during his inauguration.

The El Paso Times reported Tuesday that William Mose Tucker of El Paso remains in custody without bond. His next court date is March 28.

An attorney for Tucker seeks bond - saying his client doesn't own any weapons or ammunition and there's no evidence he planned to carry out the alleged threat.

Documents show Tucker last September told someone he planned to shoot Obama. Tucker was indicted Jan. 16 on a charge of making a threat against the president. He was arrested four days later in Lawton, Okla., while selling magazines. Obama's inauguration was the next day.

Details weren't released on who reported Tucker.
