Based on the evidence following the arrest of an audio recording Bartee, a former Secret Service agent had arranged the kidnapping plan for several days with the prospective executor of his abduction. Bartee arrest was made after a request from the Oconee County sheriff today.
Through his defense, Bartee judge him very feasible to run for sheriff even if some parties do not agree. He admitted that he had become a member of the Secret Service for 25 years before finally retiring in 2000.
Secret Service also recognizes that Bartee was a former employee, but they do not explain how long Bartee joined the secret service in charge of guarding the U.S. president.
