Pulaski County man charged with making terroristic threats online



A Wanyesville man was charged this week with first-degree making a terroristic threat and second-degree harassment.

Allen Kimberlin, 45, had an arraignment on Friday. A bond hearing will be held at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, while a preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Monday, Jan. 8. A warrant was served on Friday and his bond was set at $200,000, according to Casenet.

The probable cause statement says police conducted a wellness check on Kimberlin. Someone had requested the wellness check  after he alletedly made “alarming facebook posts and messages about harming people,” according to the statement.

Police had asked Kimberlin if he had any ideas about harming himself and others, and he allegedly said “no.” The statement says that he did not show any signs of anger or being in an “altered mental status.”

About 45 minutes later, according to the probable cause statement, police had received screenshots of Kimberlin’s Facebook account that allegedly showed posts threatening at least 10 specific people.

Later that night, a warrant for a 96-hour hold was obtained, and Kimberlin was arrested at a bar. The probable cause statement says he was “highly agitated and yelling for the entirety of the transport,” and allegedly threatened to kill the police officers’ families.
