HARRISBURG — A Pennsylvania grand jury has charged a Clarks Summit man with threatening to kill President Barack Obama.

Prosecutors say in a Thursday release that 42-year-old Nicholas Savino allegedly sent a threatening e-mail to the White House on Aug. 16.

The e-mail allegedly said that Obama is the Anti-Christ and that he must stand down or be shot dead.

The charges stem from an investigation by the U.S. Secret Service and the Clarks Summit police.

On Aug. 23, the day Obama visited Scranton and the region, local police seized ammunition and weapons at a home in Clarks Summit on behalf of the Secret Service.

Savino couldn’t be located for comment.
