A New Castle man is accused of threatening House Speaker John Boehner through emails and telephone calls.

A New Castle man is in trouble with federal authorities after he allegedly made threats against House Speaker John Boehner.

32-year-old Brandon James Thompson is accused of violating a federal code that violated threats made through “interstate communications.”

Prosecutors said he made several threats via email and telephone against Boehner as a result of Congress not extending unemployment insurance.

He has been unemployed for more than a year and his unemployment benefits ran out in January, according to court documents.

Thompson is also accused of calling the personal cell phone of Boehner’s wife 19 times, leaving a few threatening voicemails. She reported the first threatening call on May 1, and another on May 6.

Thompson was apprehended last week and appeared in court Friday, before being released on house arrest.
