DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A 28-year-old man jailed in southwest Ohio and accused of threatening to kill “white cops” has been indicted on four counts of ethnic intimidation.

Montgomery County authorities say Aaron Johnson was arrested in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, after making repeated threats about killing police, especially “white cops.” Authorities say he made repeated racially charged insults. Johnson is black.

Sheriff’s deputies had responded to a Harrison Township address from where Johnson allegedly called a 911 dispatcher to say he would shoot any officers who came near him.

Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. announced the fifth-degree felony indictments Friday.

Johnson will be arraigned Tuesday. He is being held on $25,000 bond. Court and jail records don’t show an attorney for him.
