Man threatens Obama in spray paint on his house

The Secret Service were contacted in reference to a threat an Aiken County resident made in spray paint on the side of his mobile home, authorities said.

Walter Jones of Anthony Drive and Lee Drive in Burnettown spray painted “Kill Obama,” on the outside of his mobile home in red spray paint, Aiken County Sheriff’s Capt. Troy Elwell said.

Neighbors were upset and police were called on Sunday afternoon.

“We went out and had a word with him,” Elwell said, noting deputies have had run-ins with Jones in the past due to “strange and irrational behavior.”

Because it is a felony offense, the Sheriff’s Office contacted the Secret Service who had already contacted Jones, Elwell said.
