AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta man was arrested on Saturday for terrorist threats and acts after he threatened to shoot President Barack Obama, according to a report.
Richmond County deputies found and detained Neil Wilson and contacted a Secret Service agent who told them Wilson called a Crisis Intervention Hotline and threatened the president and to "shoot up a bus station," the report said.
Wilson told deputies he threatened the president because he cut his check off, the report said. He told deputies he didn't actually wish to harm the president.
He was arrested for terrorist threats and acts at the Courtesy Motel on 15th Street.
