Man accused of issuing threats to judges
by UPI

ST. LOUIS -- A 52-year-old man threatened multiple St. Louis County, Mo., judges and offered to fight U.S. Supreme Court members, authorities allege.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said Thursday that David Gerald Jeep has been charged in relation to the threats that began Oct. 7 with various e-mail messages sent to county judges, along with multiple federal agents and even U.S. President Barack Obama.

The messages contained references to noted terrorists such as the so-called Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski, and Timothy McVeigh, the man executed for the 1995 Oklahoma City federal office building bombing.

FBI Special Agent Lyonel Myrthil alleged in an affidavit that the messages also alluded to a potential bombing of a federal building and a proposal for a fight with Supreme Court justices.

The Post-Dispatch said Jeep's allegedly threatening messages appear to be rooted in his opposition to his 2003 arrest for driving under the influence. Jeep alleged in 2007 lawsuits, the arrest resulted in him getting a divorce, along with losing custody of his son and ownership of his house.
