Man charged in connection with threats to kill President Donald Trump has been arrested in California, Fox News reports.
Mark Pappas, a 52-year-old from California, was charged with threatening the president, threatening his staff, and making threats against a federal official.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
In a news conference Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said Pappasa “will be subject to enhanced surveillance and monitoring and he is expected to make a plea agreement.”
Rosenstein said Papps “has been accused of making threats of violence to the president of the United States and other officials in the federal government.”
Pappas was booked into the Alameda County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court for a detention hearing in San Francisco on Aug. 10.
He is currently being held without bond and faces a maximum of three years in federal prison if convicted.
