DAVIESS COUNTY, MO – An arraignment hearing is scheduled at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning for a Utah man accused of making a terrorist threat.
According to a probable cause statement filed in Daviess County, a call was received March 14 by court house officials claiming a man allegedly threatened to shoot a Daviess County sheriff’s deputy. An investigation found that the caller, Brinton James Bingham, 35, of Provo, Utah, had threatened a Daviess County Circuit Clerk’s Office staffer, allegedly stating that he intended to come to the court house and shoot a law enforcement officer if he was required to pay a fine from a recent court case.
