ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Rochester man now admits he resisted arrest when Secret Service agents went to his home to question him about a threatening remark made about President Barack Obama.

Federal prosecutors say Christopher Ludwig, 31, pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and impeding officers on Wednesday. In May 2012, Secret Service agents went to Ludwig’s home after he allegedly called the Monroe County Board of Elections and made a threatening remark about President Barack Obama.

When agents arrived, Ludwig resisted arrest. He could be sentenced to up to a year in prison in September.
