Nugent alive, not jailed

Fans of Ted Nugent, who calls himself Uncle Ted as well as the Motor City Madman, are likely rejoicing.

Those who don’t care for the host of “Spirit of the Wild,” which airs on The Outdoor Channel, may be questioning Nugent’s veracity.

On April 17, 2012, Nugent said, on a YouTube video posted by the National Rifle Association, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

This time next year came and went on Wednesday. The Times-News can find no indication that Nugent, also known for his guitar playing, is either without pulse or being served county or state food in a captive setting.
