Tennessee man arrested, charged with terror threat
A Waverly, Tennessee man is in jail charged with "Commission of Act of Terrorism" for sending a threatening letter to a Nashville television station.
Nathan Semans was arrested Wednesday by the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
On Wednesday the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDOSHS) received an email from the station saying they received a threating email from Nathan Semans. In the email, Semans expressed his displeasure towards President Trump stating,
“Look if you don’t run story I’m going to state capital to blow someone’s brain out. I don’t look good at the moment cause the tyranny of what trump did, the nature of this call is secret. You think I’m kidding trump belongs in the dumpster from a cool kid. Knock it off I’m human. I’ll immediately leave this country on a double once my passport clears, I’m sick of this nonsense and bologna hanging around that trumps the perfect American, hallelujah against trump I recommend you forward to the table of the news room or I join ISIS to seek revenge.”
Wednesday afternoon State troopers were sent to Humphreys County and contacted Semans. He admitted to making the threat and claim about joining ISIS. He told troopers he didn't own any guns, was apologetic and called the station back saying he was just kidding.
He was taken to the Humphreys County jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
A search of Seman's house resulted in no weapons being found and his cellphone and tablet being taken for analysis.
The United States Secret Service will be following up with Nathan Semans.
