An Indiana man has been arrested and charged after he wrote on Facebook about his desire to shoot President Donald Trump.

It was on March 28 when 20-year-old Steffon Gonzalez said on Facebook that he was “standing outside the president’s location with a bullet ‘chambered’ to ‘blow his head off,’” Fox 59 reported.

Gonzalez has been charged with two counts of threats against the president and one count of obstruction of justice, The Chicago Tribune reported.

According to the indictment, Gonzalez posted March 28 on Facebook “that he was standing outside with a rifle ‘ready to kill’ the president.” Gonzalez also posted “that he was standing outside the president’s location with a bullet ‘chambered’ to ‘blow his head off,’” the indictment states.

Gonzalez made the post March 28, the day that Trump attended a rally in Grand Rapids, Mich., according to court records.

The obstruction of justice charge stems from Gonzalez attempting “to destroy and conceal” his Facebook account as the Secret Service investigated threats against the president, according to the indictment.

After receiving a tip about the threat, the Secret Service requested assistance from Hobart police as law enforcement went to Gonzalez’s residence in the 3800 block of Parker Street, according to an affidavit.

“(Gonzalez) was advised he was under arrest for threatening the government, and he immediately stated he didn’t put anything on Facebook, and his account apparently was hacked,” the affidavit said.

“Gonzalez denied making any threats to the president,” the affidavit said. He “maintained his innocence” and “swore on his son’s life and his ‘older Grandma’s’ grave he was telling the truth.”
