A Rochester man is facing federal charges after the Secret Service says he made death threats toward President Obama.

Court papers say Secret Service agents arrested Brandon Correa on Wednesday at his Kingston Street home. 

Agents questioned him after a post on his Twitter account included a message directed at the president that read in part, “I’m coming to watch you die." Agents say he repeated that the president quote "must die" during questioning.

According to court paperwork, Correa told agents that Jehovah and CNN told him to make the threats.

     

If convicted, Correa could face up to 10 years in prison.
