UPDATE:

NELLIS AIR BASE, Nev. — Military officials say the main entrance of an Air Force base outside Las Vegas was shut down after a man made a verbal threat to a guard at the gate.

Nellis Air Force Base spokesman Chuck Ramey said the entrance was closed more than three hours on Friday and federal agents arrested the man, who was a civilian.

Ramey said the threat was made at about 3 p.m. and was believed to be an isolated incident. He said operations at the base – including other entrances – were not affected.

Ramey declined to identify or describe the man, but said he was alone.

Las Vegas police were called to re-route traffic in the area. Officials expected the main entrance to reopen Friday night.

I guess a sure way to break posse comitatus

is to have the military "defend itself" on US soil. I'm sure pre-emptive measures will be considered.

Just found this. Wonder what

Just found this. Wonder what 'verbal' threat would have been so bad to shut the place down?
