Upstate NY Man Accused of Threat Against Obama

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. — An upstate New York man is accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama and elementary schoolchildren in Saratoga County.

The Secret Service and local authorities collaborated to arrest Brent Dickinson of Saratoga Springs, police said.

The 33-year-old man "intended to murder" the targets of his threatening messages, the county district attorney's office said Saturday. The Secret Service intercepted two threatening messages Dickinson posted on a White House message board Friday, the office said.

Dickinson was arraigned in Saratoga Springs City Court on charges of making terroristic threats.

He was taken to city jail after bail was set at $50,000. It wasn't immediately known Saturday whether he had an attorney.

A message left at a number listed for Dickinson's possible relatives was not returned Saturday.
