WASHINGTON (AP) - After meeting with rocker Ted Nugent, the Secret Service says its probe into what Nugent had to say about President Barack Obama is over.

Last weekend during a National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis, Nugent said of the Obama administration: "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November." He also said he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama is re-elected.

That drew the attention of the Secret Service. Nugent says he discussed the matter with two agents on Thursday while in Oklahoma.

A spokesman for the agency, Brian Leary, says the issue has been resolved and that the Secret Service does not anticipate any further action.

Nugent says he's never made threats of violence against anyone.
