Secret Service agents arrested a North Carolina man on Wednesday for threatening to murder President Barack Obama in a series of tweets on Twitter.
Donte Jamar Sims told Secret Service agents he tweeted threats like "Ima hitpresident Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swag" because he hated Obama.
Sims also said he was "high on marijuana when he made the threats," which included tweets such as “Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !...Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he's in town -_-.”.
Sims also tweeted that the Secret Service "is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack’s Forehead… F* the #DNC.”
A Secret Service Intelligence Specialist discovered Sims' tweets on September 3, which led to Sims arrest. Sims is currently locked up, awaiting a hearing on Tuesday.
