Man Detained at Temple 'Didn't Use Good Judgment'

A 32-year-old Maryland man who police detained outside the Oak Creek Sikh temple was sent on his way after a police investigation.

The man was found with ammunition in his vehicle, "strange" writings about the Aurora, Colorado mass shooting and duct tape and a large amount of zip ties in his backpack, according to an Oak Creek police report.

Police Chief John Edwards told Patch's media partners at Fox 6 that authorities determined he wasn't a threat, just "someone who didn't use good judgment."

Edwards also said the temple has been helped by a security plan put in place following the shootings Aug. 5, when a white supremacist killed six temple members and wounded four others.
