(WJBF) – Federal authorities have arrested a man accused of sending death threats to South Carolina Senator Tim Scott.

Jason Kenneth Bell called Scott’s Washington Office nearly a dozen times last week and threatened to kill him.

Court documents show Bell didn’t like Scott’s criticism of President Trump’s statements after the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that turned deadly.
