CHARLESTON, S.C. - A Charleston County man is in jail after authorities say he called 911 on election night and threatened to shoot President Obama.
Charleston County sheriff's deputies say 51-year-old Kevin Daryl Salvo of Johns Island called the emergency number twice Tuesday night. A 911 dispatcher told officers that during the call, a man cursed all Democrats.
He demanded that all Democrats stay away from him and also told the dispatcher "the South will rise again."
Deputies arrested Salvo late Tuesday night shortly after Obama was declared the winner.
He's in jail on an $1,100 bond. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
