via BREAKING 911 WATCH: (Scroll Down For Video) The Texas teenager who was arrested last month when his homemade clock was mistaken for a bomb says he’s happy the incident happened.
Ahmed Mohamed, a 14-year-old Sudanese American, was arrested last month after bringing his clock to school to show from his engineering teacher. The Muslim teen’s English teacher saw him with the clock and called police, fearing it was an explosive.
The teen’s arrest sparked fury across the nation, and in the aftermath President Obama invited Ahmed to visit the White House as consolation. Mohamed took the president up on his offer, and met with him at the White House Monday night, where the two talked about astronomy.
Fresh off his meeting with the president, Ahmed held a press conference outside the capital on Tuesday to discuss how the arrest has changed his life for the better.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday the president has made clear in many settings the respect he has for law enforcement officers.
Ahmed has visited Google and Facebook, along with other companies and institutions in recent weeks.
