The Deseret News reports:
A Utah man who claimed he was on his way to Missouri to kill a former U.S. senator was arrested after UHP troopers caught him driving up to 130 mph in the snow while impaired.
George William Stahl, 36, of Cottonwood Heights, was booked into the Summit County Jail early Wednesday for investigation of making a threat of terrorism, failing to stop at the command of police, reckless driving, speeding, DUI and drug possession.
“He stated that he was on his way to Missouri to kill (former U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill) if she wasn’t dead already. Stahl also stated that he hit the spikes going 135 mph,” the affidavit states. “Stahl made several real threats to Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill. He stated that he was on his way to Missouri to kill her several times.”
