Kevin Lawrence, 46, is being held on $50,000 bail after he allegedly spit on a Secret Service agent guarding President Barack Obama’s home.

Lawrence, who lives on the 5200 block of South Harper Avenue, approached a vehicle with a Secret Service agent inside and spit on the man inside on December 29. The agent was guarding Obama’s Kenwood home on the 5000 block of South Greenwood Avenue.

Chicago Police arrested Lawrence near his home on Saturday.
