MURPHYSBORO, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois man is accused of threatening to set fire to property inside the Republican Committee Office in the city of Murphysboro.

The (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reports (https://bit.ly/2dtcrUB ) that 48-year-old Robin Leon Little was charged with intimidation, resisting a peace officer and disorderly conduct.

In documents filed by Jackson County State’s Attorney Michael Carr, authorities accuse Little of telling someone he was going to burn items inside the office.

According to the complaint, Little fought with an officer trying to arrest him.

Little is being held in the Jackson County Jail. His bond was set at $20,000.

It was not immediately clear if Little had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
