A 45-year-old Oregon man accused of calling the FBI phone line 752 times since December 2015 and leaving threats for agents is facing a federal criminal charge.

Authorities said Shawn Fredrick Weatherhead of Eugene called the line in April and declared, “I have a legal right to start killing you people. And I’m going to,” The Oregonian reports.  [1]

On April 2, Weatherfield added in a message, “I’m going to start killing people.”

Weatherman was charged with interstate communication of a threat to injure another person, according to a complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Eugene.

It’s not the first time Weatherman was charged for making inappropriate calls to a law enforcement agency. In June 2015, he was sentenced to 10 days of jail after pleading guilty to five counts of telephonic harassment. A condition of his probation was that he not have contact with any law enforcement agency unless it’s an emergency.
