When aspiring screenwriter Jeffrey L. Clemens sent threatening letters to a couple of federal judges in 2003 and 2004, he was (amazingly enough) given a warning. But after his lawsuit against Creative Artists Agency was tossed out, Clements allegedly mailed U.S. District Judge Dickran Tevrizian a note suggesting that "some guy is going to walk up behind you, wherever you may be, and proceed to 'lay your brains out on the ground.'" This time, he is being charged and was taken into custody Wednesday at his parents' home in Ohio.
