Secret Service investigates man's threats in Winter Park
Suspect taken to hospital under Baker Act
A man's threats in Winter Park required the assistance of the Secret Service on Thursday, the same day President Barack Obama made a campaign stop in the city and former President Bill Clinton visited the area, the Orange County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies were called to 903 Semoran Blvd. at 4:50 p.m. after a man was making verbal threats, deputies said.
Detectives said the man's mental state met the criteria of the Baker Act statute and he was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
The investigation, deputies said, was turned over to the Secret Service.
The Sheriff's Office would not say why Secret Service agents were involved or if the threats had anything to do with Obama or Clinton.
