The Secret Service plans to meet with rock-n-roll guitarist Ted Nugent on Thursday to clarify remarks he made about President Barrack Obama and administration officials during the National Rifle Association's convention last weekend in St. Louis.
Nugent, a gun-rights activist and bow-hunting enthusiast, was at the convention drumming up support for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The Motor City Madman referred to what he called Obama's "evil, America-hating administration" and urged NRA members to "to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November," adding that if Obama is re-elected, "I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
Nugent doesn't appeared to be worried. He told Glenn Beck during a radio interview Thursday that after he talks to agents, it will be clear that he didn't make any threats.
"The conclusion will be obvious that I threatened no one," he said.
Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed that the agency is looking into the matter but declined to give details.
"We are aware of the incident and we are taking appropriate follow-up," Ogilvie told The Associated Press.
