A Charleston man accused of threatening to kill the president on Facebook was arraigned in federal court in Atlanta today.

Patrick Randell McIntosh, 28, is also accused of possessing three firearms and ammunition while under indictment for a felony, according to the FBI’s Atlanta office.

McIntosh was arrested in the Atlanta area in October after he threatened a woman who told police he was stalking her. Investigators found three guns and ammunition in his hotel room and discovered that he had threatened on his Facebook page to kill people at an Atlanta lounge as well as the president.

McIntosh was charged with stalking a woman in Charleston last March and released from the Charleston County jail on $50,000 bail, according to Charleston County Court records.

McIntosh faces up to five years in prison on the firearms charge and up to 10 years on the threat charge, as well as a $250,000 fine on each charge.
