(DAVIESS COUNTY, Mo.) A Utah man faces charges of making a terrorist threat after he allegedly threatened to shoot deputies in Daviess County.


Brinton Bingham was arrested in Colorado after leaving his home in Utah. Bingham allegedly told officers he was on his way to Daviess County to shoot deputies.

According to the Daviess County Sheriff's Office, clerks at the Daviess County Courthouse received a phone call on Wednesday from an individual who was upset about a fine he was ordered to pay. During the conversation, the caller threatened to "shoot up the courthouse."

The Sheriff's Office said Bingham identified himself after talking to a Deputy Sheriff and, again, threatened to shoot deputies.

The courthouse was put on lockdown while deputies tracked the cell phone call.

According to court records, Bingham was ordered to pay a $150 fine after being found guilty of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia earlier this month.

Temperatures start off in the 40s Monday morning with a chance for some scattered rain showers and possibly a few snowflakes. Once we get past rush hour a cold front will push though and start to drop our temperatures and increasing wind speeds. Because of this, our highs will only be in the 20s tomorrow and wind gusts out of the north will be between 15-20mph. After Monday we will gradually warm back up to highs in the 40s for the rest of the week.
