  • LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — An eastern Kentucky man has been detained by federal authorities after allegedly running through a roadblock while carrying multiple firearms during President Barack Obama's visit to the Cincinnati region this month.

    A federal criminal complaint unsealed in Covington on Wednesday says Kerry T. Prater of West Liberty had three weapons and a "quantity of ammunition" when he ran through an Erlanger police roadblock on Sept. 17. Obama's motorcade passed through northern Kentucky that day en route to Cincinnati.

    The complaint, written by Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agent Ronald Young, says Prater has a lengthy criminal history and had been previously declared mentally ill.

    Prater's listed attorney, Kerry Neff of Covington, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday afternoon.

    1. What was this guy thinking? Did he think he was going to take out the President that easily? If he was trying to assinate the President, I hope he gets everything our justice department can give him!
