WINTER PARK (AP) — The Secret Service has launched an investigation into a Florida man who has been committed for a mental evaluation after he made threats on the same day that President Obama and former President Clinton visited the Orlando area.

Orange County Sheriff’s officials say the unidentified man made the threats Thursday, the same day Obama addressed a campaign crowd at Rollins College and Clinton attended a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.

Deputies arrested the man at a Winter Park apartment complex and transported him to a facility for mental evaluation.

The case was then turned over to the U.S. Secret Service.

Officials wouldn’t say if the threats were directed at Obama or Clinton.
