SOMERVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - An Oakland man is accused of making more than 100 threats against a Fayette County judge in text messages.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents arrested Kevin Michael Vinyard on Sunday. He is charged with retaliation, assault and harassment and is being held on $1,000,000 bond.

The agency says Vinyard made threats against the judge’s life in response to a previous incarceration that he blamed on the judge.

A number listed for Vinyard in the phone directory was out of service.
