AZ Shooting Victim Arrested For Making Threats

PHOENIX -- One of the Arizona shooting victims was arrested Saturday and then taken for a psychiatric evaluation after authorities said he took a picture of a tea party leader at televised town hall meeting and yelled: "you're dead."
James Eric Fuller, 63, objected to something Trent Humphries said during the forum taped for a special edition of ABC's "This Week" with Christiane Amanpour, Pima County sheriff's spokesman Jason Ogan said. Fuller was in the front row and apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control should be delayed until all the dead were buried, KGUN-TV in Tucson reported.
Fuller was arrested on misdemeanor disorderly conduct and threat charges, Ogan said. While Fuller was being escorted out, deputies decided he needed a mental health evaluation and he was taken to a hospital, where he remained Saturday evening.
The hospital will determine when he will be released, Ogan said.
Fuller was one of 19 people shot at a Safeway store Jan. 8. Six people died and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords remains in critical condition with a bullet wound to the head

The Left Wing idiots here in town are already posting comments that "Law enforcement is over-reacting" and "Give him a break, he's the victim here.
Funny how they'll point the finger at the Right but make excuses all day long for the Left.

Well, the simple fact is that he was taken to a hospital, not jail. I guess Lefty figures they should've just drivien him home.

"deputies decided he needed a mental health evaluation" I'm starting to get worried. Since when are deputies qualified to make that decision?

Their idiot democrat sheriff probably ordered them to, Richard.
