A Napa man arrested for threatening to bring the “Apocalypse” upon Pacific Union College in Angwin is set to be arraigned at 2 p.m. today on charges of felony criminal threats.
Michael Lynden Wilson, 22, a transient, is being held in Napa County jail on $100,000 bail.
Wilson was arrested last Sunday after he called the college, threatening to come onto the PUC campus and do harm to many people, according to the sheriff’s department.
“He said he would bring the 'Apocalypse' upon the students and staff if his name was not cleared,” Napa County Sheriff’s Sgt. Craig Nickles said on the day of Wilson’s arrest.
Wilson has had run-ins with campus officials in the past, the sheriff’s office said.
“He is not a PUC student. The college has a no-trespass order on (Wilson). He wants that order dropped and his named cleared,” Sheriff’s Capt. Tracey Stuart said.
Stuart said she did not know what the problem was between Wilson and the college.
Napa Police had contact with Wilson about two days prior to the PUC incident, when he threatened to harm himself, Nickles said.
Intercepting cell phone calls placed by Wilson, law enforcement were able to track him down in Vallejo on Sunday evening.
He was taken into custody with no problems, Nickles said, adding that no weapons were found.
