Mental treatment for North Carolina farmer?

The North Carolina farmer who terrorized the nation's capital with his tractor will undergo a 45-day mental evaluation at the federal prison hospital in Butner.

Dwight Watson was responsible for a 47-hour stand-off last March that snarled traffic in downtown Washington for four hours.

He was convicted in September of making a false bomb threat, and destruction of federal property.
