Chicago Man Arrested for Spitting on Secret Service Agent Outside of President Obama's House

A reckless man has been arrested for spitting on a Secret Service agent outside of the Obama family's Kenwood home. Even when the First Family is in D.C., their Chicago home is heavily guarded by the Secret Service, with barricades preventing entry to the block to everyone except residents.

46-year-old Kevin Lawrence reportedly spit on the vehicle of an agent guarding the home back on Dec. 29, and the agent was hit in the face and neck. He was arrested near his Hyde Park home on Saturday, and was charged with aggravated battery of a peace officer. He was detained on $50,000 bond.

Who knows why it took two weeks for Lawrence to be arrested, but one thing's for sure—spitting on a Secret Service agent will land you in handcuffs.
