Man Arrested for Making Death Threat Against Sir Elton
A Georgia man who posted a video death wish against Elton John on YouTube was arrested on Wednesday.
The AP reports the man, Neal Horsley, 65, was jailed on a $40,000 bond in Carrollton, about 50 miles west of Atlanta, said Atlanta Police Sergeant Curtis Davenport.
Horsley allegedly made terrorist threats when he posted a video of himself holding a sign in front of a building he claimed contained a condo owned by John on YouTube on February 28.
Horsely was reported angry following John's comments to a magazine regarding Jesus and gays. John said he thought Jesus was a 'compassionate, super-intelligent gay man who understood human problems'.
Horsley in his video said: 'What Elton John has done is desecrated the image of the Lord Jesus Christ, blasphemed the Lord Jesus Christ.'
