From Michigan, some frightening news. Sounds like yet another fan of Glenn Beck!

Richard Scott McLeod of Brighton was arrested Monday in Webberville on weapons charges and is under suspicion for potential threats against President Barack Obama.

On the outside of the 48-year-old's vehicle were bumper stickers quoting Adolf Hitler. On the inside, police say there was a picture of Obama, a loaded gun, a bullet-proof vest and tips on how to build bombs.

The incident caught the attention of federal law enforcement. McLeod faces charges for illegally possessing body armor and a loaded gun.

He's currently behind bars in the Ingham County jail.

Another report states he had bombmaking materials in the car and information on his laptop is possibly related to members of the extremist group Hutaree.
