Two men arrested after threatening to go on shooting sprees last year in Prince George's County faced misdemeanor charges that were far less severe than the nature of the threats made, according to prosecutors supporting legislation that would make it a felony to issue threats of mass violence in Maryland.
A Crofton man who was hospitalized after police said he made threats to open fire at his former workplace will be charged with one misdemeanor count of telephone misuse, Prince George’s County police and prosecutors announced Wednesday.
A Crofton man referring to himself as “a joker” and armed with 25 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition was taken into police custody after threatening to go on a shooting spree at his former workplace, police said Friday.
"I am a joker; I'm gonna load my guns and blow everybody up," Mr. Prescott reportedly said during conversations, adding that he would like to see the man's brain spattered on the sidewalk, police said.
