DENVER, CO The Secret Service says Joseph Calanchini of Pinedale, Wyoming,
faces a charge of unlawful carrying of a weapon. State officials
say he didn't have a concealed weapons permit. Authorities aren't
saying if the weapons were loaded.
Just before being released from jail on $10,000 bond, Calanchini
told a Denver television station (KUSA-TV) that he doesn't watch
the news and didn't even know the convention was in town. He says
he was planning to go hunting.
Pelosi and other guests briefly evacuated the hotel. Police say
they were never in danger.
