Joseph Sean McVey, 23, of Coshocton, Ohio, is charged with going armed in terror of the public, a misdemeanor, said Asheville Regional Airport Police Capt. Kevan Smith.

So showing up to “talk” to the president with a handgun, a fake ass police car, no valid license, and rifle scope dope is only a misdemeanor? I would have assumed it would be been treated a lot more seriously. The article said McVey was just in the parking lot though, so I guess it wasn’t considered an imminent threat.
I also wonder why he was monitoring police frequencies, and had digital cameras mounted on his front and rear windows. It would make sense if he works for a security company, because all that equipment would probably be standard in some company cars.
