BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - A Birmingham man imprisoned for threatening President Barack Obama has been returned to jail for violating the terms of his supervised released, court records show.

U.S. District Court Judge Lynwood Smith ordered that Jarvis Britton, 28, serve an additional six months. Britton has been on probation since late 2013 after completing a one-year sentence for making threatening Internet posts against the president.

On March 27, a federal probation officer recommended jailing Britton after he failed drug tests and missed counseling appointments. He was returned Thursday to federal prison in Talladega, Al.com (http://bit.ly/1MiafWP ) reports.

Probation officials said Britton violated the terms of his release by failing drug tests for marijuana on July 15, Dec. 12 and Jan. 27. Britton admitted to using marijuana, according to probation officers.

He was also accused of failing to attend court-ordered counseling and psychiatric appointments late last year and early this year.
