A judge has ordered a Perryton man to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after being accused of threatening President Biden via Facebook posts as well as emails sent to local news outlets.
Shawn Summer has been charged with Threats Against the President and Successors as well as Transmission of Threats in Interstate Commerce.
On July 25th Summers made a threatening post on Facebook and on July 27th he sent a screenshot of another to an Amarillo area news outlet.
Secret Service interviewed him on July 28th and he admitted he knew he was in the wrong but that he felt the threats were justified.
He continued to send emails with alarming messages, including one where he stated “lets use the guns we never told the secret service about”.
Summers is in the custody of the Attorney General and will be placed in a mental facility to determine if he is capable of standing trial.
