An eastern Kentucky man has been detained by federal officials who say he carried multiple firearms and ran through a roadblock during President Barack Obama's visit to the Cincinnati region earlier this month.

A federal criminal complaint unsealed in Covington on Wednesday says Kerry T. Prater of West Liberty had three weapons and a "quantity of ammunition" when he ran through an Erlanger police roadblock on Sept. 17. Obama's motorcade passed through northern Kentucky that day on the way to Cincinnati.

The complaint, authored by Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agent Ronald Young, says Prater has a lengthy criminal history and has been previously declared mentally ill.

Prater's listed attorney, Kerry Neff of Covington, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Wednesday afternoon.
