Updated: Now WCBS 2 reports says it was a Newark Liberty International worker (not a former NJ state trooper) who was arrested last night for making threats against President Obama. "The nature of the threat is unknown. According to sources, the employee was arrested in his New Jersey home after a co-worker alerted authorities that the suspect made threatening remarks about President Obama. At some point after learning of the threat, law enforcement officials searched the home and found several weapons." It's unclear whether the threats were related to Obama's visit to NYC yesterday and NJ today.
