One of victims is arrested at TV town hall
tucson — Arizona shooting victim James Eric Fuller was arrested Saturday and taken for a psychiatric evaluation after allegedly photographing a tea party leader at a gathering organized by ABC and yelling: “You’re dead.”
Authorities said Fuller, 63, objected to something Trent Humphries said during the forum taped for an ABC special. He apparently became upset when Humphries suggested that any conversations about gun control be delayed until all the dead were buried, according to news reports.
An officer tried to escort Fuller out, and deputies decided he need-ed to be examined by a psychiatrist. Fuller was involuntarily committed for a minimum of 72 hours. He is expected to be charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and threatening.
The forum— taped for a special edition of ABC’s “ ThisWeek” with Christiane Amanpour, according to reports— brought together victims, witnesses, emergency responders to discuss the shooting.
