Arizona Shooting Victim Arrested after Threat

Saturday, 15 Jan 2011 10:43 PM


TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say one of the victims of the shooting rampage in Tucson has been arrested after he threatened a tea party leader during a town hall meeting for a television show.

James Eric Fuller, who was shot in the knee and the back, objected to something Trent Humphries said during the forum Saturday. Authorities say the 63-year-old Fuller took a picture of Humphries and yelled "you're dead."

Pima County sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan says Fuller has been arrested on disorderly conduct and threat charges. Ogan says while Fuller was being escorted out, deputies decided he needed a mental health evaluation and he was taken to a hospital.

The town hall was being taped for an ABC special.
