Not so tough now, eh?

On Nov. 1, Castillo wrote the following on Facebook, apparently in response to Obama's views on health care:
Thatís the last straw, if he gets re-elected Iím going to hunt him down and kill him watch the life disappear from his eyes.
Threatening the U.S. president's life is never taken lightly. After a tip-off from a concerned citizen, Secret Service agents arrived at Castillo's Melbourne home on Nov. 8 to investigate his intentions behind the Facebook post.

According to the felony complaint report filed by the Secret Service, an agent asked Castillo what his actions would be "if the President was standing here right now?" The angry man didn't hold back his opinions, replying he would ďbitch slap him, and beat the shit out of him.Ē He also stated he would scream and call Obama a terrorist.

Florida Today spoke with Castillo's father, who is arguing that there isn't anything behind the allegations against his son.

ďA lot of people say things on Facebook that they donít mean, and I understand the Secret Service has to do what they have to do, itís their job,Ē
