COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A Columbus man accused of threatening President Barack Obama on Twitter is scheduled for an initial court appearance Tuesday.
A complaint filed by the U.S. Secret Service in federal court in Columbus says the threatening tweets were made last month and included threats to kill the president.
The complaint says that when interviewed by a Secret Service agent late last month, Daniel Temple admitted to posting the threatening messages.
The complaint says the tweets included the president's name and phrases such as "coming to kill you" and "killing you soon."
Federal Judge Elizabeth Preston Deavers is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday afternoon to determine whether Temple should remain in custody.
Temple's public defender confirmed the hearing but declined further comment.
