NAPA, CA -- A local man was jailed yesterday after threatening he would "bring the apocalypse" upon the students and staff at Pacific Union College, according to a Napa County sheriff’s sergeant.
On Sunday afternoon, Michael Wilson, 22, called the college, threatening to come onto campus and harm many people if his name was not cleared within 24 hours, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Craig Nickles.
“Mr. Wilson has had problems at PUC before and is banned from coming onto campus,” Nickles said.
Nickles said Wilson had been contacted by Napa Police two days earlier for making threats to harm himself.
Although Wilson may have other problems, “threatening violence to a school is something we have to take very seriously,” Nickles said.
By intercepting Wilson’s cell phone calls, deputies were able to track down him to Vallejo around 8 p.m. Sunday, Nickles said.
He was taken into custody without any trouble, Nickles said, adding that no weapons were found.
Wilson, a transient, was arrested on suspicion of felony making threats and booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections.
