A federal criminal complaint was unsealed in federal court on Thursday, charging David Kyle Reeves of Gastonia, N.C., with threatening the President of the United States.
Reeves was arrested on February 5 and charged with making a threat against the President Joe Biden. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.
The affidavit says Reeves called the White House switchboard in January and said, “I am going to f—–g kill you all. F— the White House. I am going to chop your heads off.”
A secret service special agent called Reeves to investigate the call. The agent said Reeves stated “he is going to continue to call and threaten people. I cannot stop him, my government cannot stop him, and no country in the world can stop him.”
Reeves made more calls to the White House and continued his threats allegedly saying, “I’m going to come kill the president.”
Reeves remains in custody and his public defender told the NY Times that he is receiving mental health evaluations.
