Facebook threat lands man in jail

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office arrested a man Wednesday for threatening a deputy on Facebook.

William Heath Skiles was charged with retaliation for past actions and is at the Hamilton County Jail in lieu of a $175,000 bond, according to a release. Skiles wrote that he would kill any deputy who disrespected him, apparently in retaliation for his wife receiving a misdemeanor traffic citation.

In the post, Skiles wrote that an officer took Skiles' granmother's nightstick-like baton and charged her with carrying an unlawful weapon.

"I am going to kill this son of a b and any other cop who wants to cross me," Skiles wrote Wednesday. "No point in living like a slave. Come get me you Godless Nazi."
