A Gastonia man was arrested this past week for making numerous threats to kill the President of The United States.
According to the Western District of North Carolina U.S. Attorney’s Office, 27-year-old David Kyle Reeves called the White House numerous times between January 28th and February 1st.
Several of the threats he made during the calls included:
- “I’m going to come kill the president, I’m going to kill the Secret Service because I own this whole planet.”
- “Come pick me up and take me to the White House so I can punch the President in the face, sit in his chair, and stay there until he dies.”
- “No punishment will stop me and it is not against the law to threaten people.”
Reeves now faces up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for making the threats.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Charlotte’s Assistant U.S. Attorney William Bozin is currently prosecuting the case.
Reeves is now the second North Carolina man to be arrested for threats to kill Joe Biden after Alexander Treisman was arrested in his heavily armed van after making threats online.
