Jury finds Iowa man guilty of making bomb threat

Posted: Updated:
LE MARS (AP) -  A jury has found a western Iowa man guilty of making a bomb threat on a government building and attempting to fight law enforcement officials while naked in his living room.

   The Le Mars Daily Sentinel reports 37-year-old Jeremy Hebert of Akron was found guilty Wednesday of making a threat to use an explosive or incendiary device. He also was convicted of three counts of assaulting law enforcement officers.

   Hebert was arrested in November, and authorities say he told them he would drop a bomb on the White House and kill George H.W. Bush, who hasn't been president since 1993.

   He has been taken to Plymouth County jail where he awaits a sentence hearing that's scheduled for March 27.
