U.S. Capitol Police, with help from Red River Valley SWAT, arrested the man at his south Fargo home Tuesday morning.
Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd told KFGO-AM (http://bit.ly/2jqYLYD ) that threats were made against a North Dakota U.S. senator. A spokeswoman for Heitkamp says it was the Democratic senator who was threatened, but that further details would have to come from the U.S. attorney's office. A spokesman for that office had no immediate comment.
An affidavit filed in federal court alleges that the suspect sent an email last month threatening to shoot a senator in the head. It doesn't identify the senator.
The suspect is to appear in court later Tuesday.
