Rocky Mountain News: “Howards and his son walked to about two-to-three feet from where Cheney was standing, and said to the vice president, ‘I think your policies in Iraq are reprehensible,’ or words to that effect, then walked on. Ten minutes later, according to Howards’ lawsuit, he and his son were walking back through the same area, when they were approached by Secret Service agent Virgil D. ‘Gus’ Reichle Jr., who asked Howards if he had ‘assaulted’ the vice president. Howards denied doing so, but was nonetheless placed in handcuffs and taken to the Eagle County Jail.”
