Charlotte Man Arrested for Making Online Threats Towards Gov. Haley
A NoDa man is in jail for a Facebook post he left on South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley's Wall. Nathan Shafer turned himself in Wednesday at a Columbia detection center.
SLED officers say Shafer posted "I hope someone murders you so I don't have to. How's that for free speech."
It was in response to the recent occupy arrests at the state capitol. Shafer says it's not really that big of a deal. He is charged with threatening the life of a public official.
The Occupy Columbia movement says Shafer has no ties with the group.
