An Ozark man was recently arrested on allegations he threatened to kill President Barack Obama. Court documents claim the threats were made during a phone call and through videos posted to his Facebook page. Deryke Pfeifer was apprehended July 2 and accused of Making Threats Against the President of the United States.

Special Agent Marcus Shumack, in a criminal complaint, alleges a phone call was made to the Federal Protective Service Dispatch Center in Michigan on June 29. The male caller threatened to kill the President.

Secret Service agents were able to determine the phone number the call came from and linked it to a Facebook account. The Ozark Police Department took Pfeifer into custody without incident.

Pfeifer, during an interview, said “God told him that God was going to destroy Obama and everything around him,” according to court documents. The agent said he also watched a video posted to Pfeifer’s Facebook page in which Pfeifer stated “America don’t you mess with Deryke Pfeiffer.” He then went on to say that he intended to blow up the Social Security Administration building and was going to kill Obama for turning on him.

The complaint also claims Pfeifer posted another video that shows him holding up a Glock pistol and making the statement to President Obama, “You feel all that heat Obama? Jesus ain’t playing with you. I just let you see that to let you know that I got it.”

A grand jury is considering evidence against Pfeifer.
