Man threatens to kill Obama
New York - A man is accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama and elementary schoolchildren in upstate New York.
Prosecutors say the US Secret Service and local authorities collaborated to arrest Brent Dickinson.
The county district attorney's office said on Saturday the 33-year-old man "intended to murder" the targets of his threatening messages. They said the US Secret Service intercepted two threatening messages posted by Dickinson on a White House message board on Friday.
Dickinson was arraigned in Saratoga Springs City Court on charges of making terroristic threats.
He was taken to city jail after bail was set at $50 000. It wasn't immediately known on Saturday whether he had an attorney.
A message left at a number listed for Dickinson's possible relatives was not returned on Saturday.
