The contents of an email sent by a Federal Way man who the Secret Service said threatened to kill Pres. Barack Obama were revealed in court documents Wednesday.

Agents and local law enforcement arrested Anton Caluori, 31, and searched his apartment Tuesday. Police said Caluori pulled a shotgun on them when they knocked, but that he was taken into custody without incident.

Caluori appeared in federal court Wednesday afternoon to face charges by criminal complaint of making a threat against the president and assault of a federal agent or employee. He remains in custody at the Federal Detention Center in SeaTac. A detention hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. Monday.

"Recent national events are a stark reminder that we must take these threats of death or violence seriously," U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan stated in a news release. "This case had all the troubling ingredients: threats of violence and explosive devices, multiple weapons with hundreds of rounds and even brandishing of a weapon at law enforcement."

Caluori told officers there were explosives in his apartment, but a bomb squad search came up blank. Officials did, however, recover two weapons from him and found several high-powered weapons in his home.

If convicted as charged, Caluori could face up to 25 years in prison.
