Ohio man in Obama Twitter threat case released

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A Columbus man accused of threatening President Barack Obama on Twitter has been released from custody pending further court hearings.

A complaint filed by the U.S. Secret Service in federal court in Columbus says the threatening tweets were made last month and included threats to kill the president.

The complaint says that when interviewed by a Secret Service agent late last month, Daniel Temple admitted to posting the threatening messages.

The complaint says the tweets included the president's name and phrases such as "coming to kill you" and "killing you soon."

Federal Judge Elizabeth Preston Deavers released Temple on his own recognizance following a Tuesday afternoon hearing.
