DENVER (AP) – A Colorado man is accused of threatening to set
fire around Sen. Michael Bennet’s office and shoot staffers.
John Troy Davis faces a charge of assault on a federal employee
and is scheduled to be in court in Denver Monday afternoon.
According to an arrest affidavit, Davis called Bennet’s office
on Thursday to complain about his Social Security benefits. At one
point, Davis allegedly told a Bennet staffer that he is
schizophrenic and that he “may go to terrorism.”
The alleged threat happened two days before six people were
fatally shot at a grocery store in Tucson where U.S. Rep. Gabrielle
Giffords was meeting with constituents.
There is no indication of any connection between Davis’ threat
and the shootings.
