Man Accused of Harassing KSDK Employees: "Enjoy the Last Remaining Moments of Life"

Threatening messages continued in January, and last week, the report says, he called KSDK repeatedly and "threatened that something bad will happen to the KSDK family."

"He...threatened to come down to the KSDK station and cause him physical harm," the report says, adding that he said "he wasn't playing anymore."

Later that day, April 2, he showed up at KSDK's offices and asked to meet with several employees.

The station has taken extra security measures, the charges say, adding that employees now "fear for their lives."

Meanwhile, Daily RFT easily found his Facebook page, which includes photos of him wearing the same T-shirt he is wearing in his mugshot. (And in one bizarre rant, he even lists his address, which matches police records.)

His page is filled with all-caps rants with very little punctuation.

And his YouTube page includes several videos of him referencing a "call to repentance and faith in Christ."

Here's one screenshot of his latest video, in which he holds a piece of paper saying "last warning."

Update 12:53 p.m.: We spoke briefly this afternoon with KSDK News Director Mike Shipley who tells us, "It's a security matter for us. We are taking appropriate measures.... We are taking precautions for our employees."

Here's the full probable-cause statement.

He looks crazy in this picture. I hope they have a secure building. Hopefully police will be apprehending him.

Looking at his face makes it funny. What he said to them and then showing up to the station makes it scary. IF he showed up to the station looking like this that would have been scary and funny at the same time!

I wish punches to the face was an acceptable immediate, legal form of punishment for stupidity.

I love that he was arrested wearing the same shirt as his profile picture, but most importantly 

I love that he is one of those ALL CAPS TYPING lunatics. The rants are insane - he is definitely a person that needs to be supervised.
