Feds: Armed Obama-seeker at N.C. airport can go

Joseph McVey, held in jail since Sunday, is now free to leave if he posts $100,000 bond

say an armed man spotted at a North Carolina airport parking lot just
after Air Force One departed can get out of jail if he posts bond.

Joseph Sean McVey has been held since Sunday on a misdemeanor
charge of going armed in terror of the public. A judge said Monday that
the Ohio man was being held at the request of federal authorities. A
Secret Service spokesman says that agency is not involved.

Asheville airport public safety chief Jeff Augram says local
authorities wanted McVey held until 6 p.m. Monday and listed the Secret
Service on court papers because the agency was on the scene. Augram
also says McVey had formulas to help shooters fire rifles outfitted
with scopes, but did not have a rifle with him.

McVey is being held on $100,000 bond.
