A Rochester woman, who is currently under an indictment for threatening to kill President Obama, was arrested and charged with violating the conditions of her pre-trial release.

Christina Wright Darrisaw, 37, of Rochester, was indicted last August for threatening to kill President Obama during a telephone call to the White House in February 2012. Police say she also made a false statement to Secret Service agents during the investigation.  Following Darrisaw's arraignment in 2012, she was released on conditions pending trial.

Darrisaw was arrested Monday after the government moved to have her arrested and detained following her recent arrests in Rochester.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Darrisaw was arrested on July 12 for disorderly conduct. Less than two weeks later, on July 25, she was arrested after police say she entered the Rochester Library, which is she is banned from entering. On August 12, officials say, during an incident at the Webster Avenue Recreation Center, Darrisaw told a victim, “My husband has guns. I'm gonna shoot you. I'll shoot every guy her and I'll kill anyone that touches my kids.” Officials say she also made a reference to President Obama. Two days after that, on August 14, officials say Darrisaw called the Social Security Administration and threatened an agent.

Darrisaw is being held until a detention hearing which is scheduled for Friday.
