A Charlotte man has been arrested for threatening to kill President Obama via Twitter.
Donte Jamar SIms, 21, was charged with threatening to the president’s life in five tweets that were posted on September 3.
Secret Service agents interviewed Sims in Charlotte yesterday and he admitted that he posted the threats because he “hated President Obama.”
One of the tweets stated “Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !...Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he’s in town -_-.” Another message claimed that the Secret Service “is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack’s Forehead… F* the #DNC.”
Sims’s Twitter account–@DestroyLeague_D–remains online, lists 500 followers, and describes him as the rapper Lupe Fiasco’s “#1 fan.” Based on his Twitter posts Tuesday, Sims apparently watched First Lady Michelle Obama’s DNC speech that evening. “Michelle Obama sexy as Hell, I ain’t even gone Front,” he wrote at 10:39 PM. About 20 minutes later, Sims tweeted, “Barack ain’t in town? You know Michelle hittin up 935 after this.” Club 935 is a popular Charlotte nightspot.
