Investigations Threats

Pennsylvania State Police arrested 61-year-old Kris Kinsey at a campsite in Durham Township, Bucks County on Friday, Jan. 15, 2021. Kinsey allegedly made Facebook threats against Democratic leaders and was illegally in possession of a firearm.

An armed man was arrested at a Bucks County campsite Friday after making repeated online threats against President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf, state police said.

Kris Kinsey, 61, previously of Elyria, Ohio, was apprehended by Pennsylvania State Police in a wooded area of Durham Township along the 700 block of Sunday Road.

State police pursued Kinsey after Elyria police obtained a warrant for his arrest for making terroristic threats.

Troopers said videos shared on Kinsey's Facebook account included threats of violence and death against Democratic leaders.

Elyria police previously arrested Kinsey in July 2020 after he allegedly hit a man in the back of the head with a rock.

When Pennsylvania troopers arrived at the campsite, they found a semiautomatic handgun, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Kinsey is now charged in Pennsylvania with making terroristic threats and gun and drug charges. He is being held at Bucks County prison.
