Man Jailed for Threatening to Kill Obama Over Twitter

by at . Comments

Twitter can be a dangerous tool - and not just in the hands of Amanda Bynes.

A 22-year old man was sentenced to six months in prison today after he was arrested in September for making Tweeted death threats against President Barack Obama.

According to The Charlotte Observer, Donte Jamar Sims will also be forced to live under supervised release for a year after his jail term is up.

The North Carolina native used the handle @DestroyLeague_D to issue his threats, many of which are still online and include:

"Well Ima Assassinate president Obama this evening !... Gotta get this monkey off my chest while he's in town."

Yeah. That's just totally illegal and not the least bit creative, Donte.

Sources also say Sims actually tried to plead guilty in court to avoid incarceration, but the judge rejected his plea.
