A South Riding man arrested earlier this month for making written threats to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and to the Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney, could face up to 10 years in prison, according to a report by Leesburg Today.
Saad Usman Lodhi was arrested April 3 and is being held in a Fairfax County jail awaiting a hearing, the newspaper reported.
Lodhi's final alleged communication, by email, to the Fairfax Board came April 3, the day of his arrest, when he allegedly told them he had applied for a concealed weapons permit, the newspaper reported.
Lodhi reportedly told the board he was “proceeding to the next phase of warfare” and that “very few debts are left unpaid.” He wrote that he had a “special gift for the Fairfax County commonwealth’s attorney click click click,” according to the affidavit and that the board would “beg for a cease fire” and they “have no idea what I’m capable of now.”
WJLA reports that Lodhi has been diagnosed with a mental illness, according to federal lawsuits he filed against Fairfax County Police and the hospital where he was institutionalized.
