Following his incendiary comments towards Democrats and President Obama over the weekend, Ted Nugent has met with the Secret Service to clear their issues, Reuters reports. The meeting, which happened yesterday in Oklahoma, went without incident and appeased both parties.
"Good, solid, professional meeting concluding that I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone," said the Motor City Madman. "The meeting could not have gone better."
The Secret Service was also positive, affirming that both sides had smoothed things over. "The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has also been completed. The issue has been resolved," said agency spokesman Brian Leary. "The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action."
The Nuge had recently come under fire over controversial statements he made at last weekend's National Rifle Association convention in St. Louis. Among his comments was a rally cry in which he said, "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November." Nugent has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for the November elections.
