Miami Man Arrested After Alleged Threat Against President Obama

MIAMI (CBS4) – The United States Secret Service is investigating an incident after a Miami man reportedly made a threat against President Barack Obama during his recent South Florida stop.

Authorities tell CBS4’s Gio Benitez that Joaquin Serrapio, 20, was arrested for making the threats. Serrapio has since bonded out of jail.

Neighbors in Serrapio’s West Miami neighborhood say police were at the Serrapio home on Thursday, the same day President Obama was visiting the University of Miami and making campaign stops across South Florida.

The nature of the threat has not been disclosed.
