The U.S. Secret Service interviewed a Toutle man Friday after he allegedly left phone messages threatening former President Bill Clinton.
Cowlitz County Sheriff’s deputies were consulted, but the federal agents handled the interview on Lapham Road, Sheriff’s officials said Saturday.
The threatening messages were made by phone to a location in Maryland, according to dispatch reports and the Sheriff’s office. Details about the nature of the threats were not available.
When the agents talked to the man, he told them that Clinton was monitoring him through “electronic witchcraft” which had caused the man’s teeth to fall out. He also blamed Clinton for ongoing dental pain for the partials he got to replace the missing teeth. And he also expressed anger toward the Catholic Church, according dispatch reports.
The matter was deemed a mental health issue and the man was not arrested Friday, according to the sheriff’s office. The final disposition is up federal officials, Sheriff’s officials said.
