Man accused of threatening Obama pleads not guilty

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man accused of threatening to kill
President Barack Obama has pleaded not guilty.

In an appearance Wednesday morning, federal prosecutors said
21-year-old Nathan Wine sent the threat via e-mail to military
recruiters last November while he was speaking with them about
joining the service.

Prosecutors say Wine acknowledged sending the e-mail in an
interview with the Secret Service and spoke about how the threat
could be carried out. Nathan's lawyers say he was off his
medication for two months when he made the threat.

A federal judge ordered Wine held without bail.
