A man has been charged with making Facebook threats to kill officers after a deputy wrote his wife a misdemeanor traffic citation.
Detectives with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division received information pertaining to comments found on the Facebook page belonging to William Heath Skiles.
Police said Skiles wrote that he intended to kill a HCSO deputy or any law enforcement officer who wanted to cross him.
The posting "indicates the threat was in retaliation for a deputy's earlier traffic stop of Skiles ' wife," it was stated.
Additionally, the posting had numerous anti-government comments.
Skiles was arrested earlier today and transported to the Hamilton County Jail, where he was booked on the charge of retaliation for past actions and is under a $175,000 bond.
