Judge drops case against man accused of threats

December 18, 2013

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A judge has agreed to dismiss a case against a Minnesota man accused of trying to extort $50 million from government agencies in the North Dakota city of Fargo and threatening to hold tribunals for politicians.

Federal prosecutors asked to drop the case against Brian Jacobson, of Battle Lake, Minn., after psychiatric evaluations found that he wasn't competent to stand trial. The reports also showed that Jacobson is not a risk to hurt anyone.

Jacobson was charged with two counts of transmitting threatening communications. Authorities say he made the threats primarily in three voicemail messages to the U.S. Marshals Service in Fargo.

Jacobson lashed out at federal Judge Ralph Erickson during an August hearing. He told the judge he ruined "two careers" and said Erickson should be arrested and handcuffed.
