A 20-year-old South Florida man was arrested for threatening the president of the United States during President Barack Obama’s trip to Miami, according to NBCMiami.
On Thursday federal agents raided the west Miami-Dade home of Joaquin Amador Serrapio Jr. He was taken into custody before he could make any attempt to harm the president, authorities said.
They said Serrapio was arrested for making threats against the president, a federal felony that could bring a five-year prison term if he is convicted.
Serrapio pleaded not guilty before a federal magistrate, who set his cash bond at $20,000, in addition to a $50,000 personal surety bond that his parents signed, according to court records.
Serrapio is due to be arraigned in federal court on March 9.
