Arizona Shooting Victim Apologizes For Death Threat
Arizona shooting victim James Fuller issued a mea culpa yesterday for his death threat against Tea Party leader Trent Humphries:
Tucson, Arizona (CNN) — Arizona shooting victim James Eric Fuller sent his apologies Monday for telling a Tea Party leader, “you are dead.”
Dorothy DeRuyter, a companion of Fuller’s, provided CNN with a statement.
“I would like to tender my sincerest apologies to Mr. (Trent) Humphries for my misplaced outrage on Saturday at the St. Odelia’s town meeting,” Fuller said in the statement. “It was not in the spirit of our allegiance and warm feelings to each other as citizens of our great country.”
Fuller, 63, was involuntarily committed to a county mental health facility after he photographed Tucson Tea Party founder Humphries and said, “You are dead” when Humphries began speaking at the event.
No word on whether Humphries will continue to insist on pressing charges.
