Hmmm. (Hat tip – David Harsanyi):

Federal authorities have scheduled a press conference for Tuesday afternoon amid reports that a fortunate traffic stop by Aurora Police may have disrupted an assassination attempt against Barack Obama.

KUSA-TV is reporting that two men have been arrested on weapons charges after the traffic stop early Sunday.

The first man, identified by the station as Tharin Gartrell, 28, was charged with suspicion of being a felon in possession of a weapon after police found two rifles, a high-powered scope and methamphetamine in his car after the traffic stop.

When police accompanied Gartrell to his hotel in Glendale, a second man jumped from a window and was injured in a four-story fall, according to the station. That man was then arrested, but has not been identified by police.

There are a lot of nutballs here.

A commenter asks for a link to a separate incident involving a man arrested for carrying weapons into a hotel where Nancy Pelosi is staying. Here.

Authorities have determined the incident was unrelated to the DNC or any Secret Service protectees.

Update: Dan Riehl notes doubts about whether the incident “was anything other than some kind of general animosity and no actual plan to do anything.”

Update: More details on the alleged plot.
