Chicago Man Accused Of Threatening Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake Indicted
James Dean Blevins is accused of threatening to kill Flake because he was "tired" of the Republican "interrupting" President Donald Trump.
A grand jury in Arizona indicted Blevins.
A federal magistrate in Chicago said in an order late Wednesday, that prosecutors in Arizona didn't agree to transfer the case to Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported Blevins left a voice message at Flake's office, saying, "I am tired of him interrupting our president, and I am coming down there to take him and his family out."
Blevins' lawyer said his client had been drinking.
The magistrate released Blevins to a family member’s custody until his next court date in Arizona.
