Armed Man Detained in Park During Bush Jog
The Secret Service detained a man with a gun in a Des Moines park where President Bush was jogging, local police and White House officials said.
Secret Service spokesman Jim Mackin said the man was about 60 yards from Bush when he was spotted by officers. He said the man had a permit for the gun, but he was detained because he was so close to the president. Mackin said the man appeared to be in the park for reasons completely unrelated to Bush’s visit.
