The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office says a complaint has been filed against a man who allegedly made threats against Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon.
The complaint charges 33-year-old Michael R. Foster with four counts of threatening or intimidating, each a class 1 misdemeanor.
The charges stem from threats Foster allegedly made against Gordon between April 26 and May 14.
An initial appearance is scheduled for Oct. 6.
Phoenix police Cmdr. Jeff Hynes says one threat claimed Gordon would be killed by sniper fire.
Hynes says the threats were written on blogs and in website comments.
