Sound man busted at Obama appearance

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 27 (UPI) -- The Secret Service arrested a sound
engineer covering President Barack Obama's Iowa trip after marijuana was
found in his backpack, Tuesday, ABC News confirmed.

The audio engineer, whose name was not reported, was part of ABC's crew
covering the presidential visit. He was brought into the assignment by a
local cameraman hired by ABC, TVNewser report on the Web site

The pot was discovered as the sound man and the cameraman were going
through the routine Secret Service security sweep. Federal agents turned
him over to local authorities, the report said.

"While we did not hire this soundman directly, we certainly regret that
the Secret Service and local authorities had to waste their valuable
time dealing with this matter," ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider
told TVNewser.
