(Harrisburg) -- A Pennsylvania grand jury has charged a Clarks Summit man with threatening to kill President Barack Obama.
Prosecutors say 42-year-old Nicholas Savino allegedly sent a threatening e-mail to the White House on August 16. Clarks Summit is about 10 miles outside Scranton in Luzerne County.
The e-mail allegedly said that President Obama is the Anti-Christ and that he must stand down or be shot dead. The charges stem from an investigation by the United States Secret Service and the Clarks Summit Police.
On August 23rd, the day Obama visited Scranton and the region, local police seized ammunition and weapons at a home in Clarks Summit on behalf of the Secret Service.
