Man arrested for encroaching Obama's safety zones

By Manoj Kumar Ramesh

Washington, Dec 24 (ANI): A man has been arrested after encroaching into the Secret Service safety zone placed around US President Barack Obama's Kailua vacation home on Thursday.

However, the Secret Service said that Obama was never in danger and the incident had nothing to do with the President.

"Honolulu Police were going to arrest someone they had traffic warrants for. He was able to get away from them and led them in a high-speed chase which ultimately led to one of our checkpoints," the CBS News quoted Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan, as saying.

"It was completely unrelated to the visit by Obama and unrelated to the Secret Service," he added. (ANI)
