On March 30, 1981, Hingley attempted to assassinate Reagan in front of the entrance to the Washington Hilton. The president was hit by a bullet, while his spokesman James Brady was wounded and later partially paralyzed. Hingley was soon arrested, and investigators discovered that the man was already pursuing actress Jodi Foster. The assassination attempt on the president would have been a way to impress her. Hingley, who was found not guilty of mental health issues, spent nearly 30 years in a psychiatric hospital, was released in 2016 and was sent to live for a while at his mother’s home in Williamsburg, Virginia, where he died last year. Meanwhile, the bomber is undergoing psychiatric treatment. The judge created a YouTube channel that has more than 28,000 subscribers and gave him the opportunity to record and record music online. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Trust and Company opposed his release.
