NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - A police official says two hecklers were removed but not charged with a crime after President Barack Obama was briefly interrupted during a campaign rally at a Las Vegas-area high school.

Clark County School District Police Chief James Ketsaa said Wednesday the hecklers were escorted off school property and released during the president's campaign rally for about 2,000 people in North Las Vegas.

At least one of the hecklers drew the president's attention before authorities hustled him out of the school as the crowd chanted, "Four more years."

Obama said, "That young man probably needed a good teacher," as the shouting subsided.

Ketsaa says a man and a woman are being questioned and may face domestic violence charges after becoming involved in a separate altercation at the campaign event.
