BURNETT COUNTY -- A criminal complaint has been filed against Webster, WI man Anthony Henderson after he allegedly made threats of causing harm to Law Enforcement on multiple occasions.
Henderson called multiple law enforcement agencies on multiple occasions and made threats of harm against the officers employed with those agencies according to the criminal complaint filed against him in Burnett County Circuit Court.
In late December 2019, Burnett County Law Enforcement responded to Henderson’s Webster, WI residence to make a welfare check due to reports that Henderson was threatening to shoot up the Sheriff’s headquarters in Ramsey County, MN. When Law Enforcement arrived at Henderson’s residence, he came out with a shotgun in his hand.
Responding Deputies took Henderson into custody after some discussion with Henderson, but without incident, however, Henderson continued to make statements about harming Law Enforcement Officers, saying that he would “put this g****m barrel on this g****m shotgun, put it down their throat and pull the f*****g trigger”.
Henderson went on to tell Law Enforcement that he would get some sleep, wake up sober, and “go after them”, and that he had called an area Police Department and “invited them up for a f*****g mouth full of f*****g buckshot.”
Charges of Class I Felony Terrorist Threats, Class I Felony Failure To Comply With Officer’s Attempt To Take Person Into Custody, Class A Misdemeanor Possession of a Firearm While Intoxicated, and Class B Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct-Domestic Abuse-Use of a Dangerous Weapon have been filed against Henderson.
At a hearing on January 21, 2020, Henderson was placed on a $500.00 cash bail bond. Conditions of his bail bond require Henderson to undergo an Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment as well as a mental health assessment. He made an initial appearance on his charges on January 29, 2020 and is scheduled to appear again in March 2020.
