OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma City have arrested a man accused of making threats against the city’s largest daily newspaper.

The Oklahoman reports 41-year-old Robert Cameron Brewer was arrested Wednesday on a complaint of threatening to kill by use of explosive.

Brewer is accused of making threats Monday in a profanity-laced voicemail to The Oklahoman. Brewer is also accused of making a threatening call in September to the office of Oklahoma County District Judge Cindy Truong.

Court records indicate Brewer has a history of mental health issues. He was put on probation for stalking in 2013 after prosecutors say he sent packages to an Oklahoma City man’s home and placed harassing notes and pictures there.

Brewer was being held Friday in the Oklahoma County jail on $200,000 bail. Court records don’t list a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.
