According to Clay County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Jason Frazier, the department received two anonymous tips that David Lee Livingston, 33, was coming to Clay County to carry out the death threats at the Clay County Courthouse Friday.
Because of the first tip, around 8:30 a.m., security was tightened at the Clay County Courthouse and employees were told to be on a heightened awareness.
Apparently, Livingston was upset about an undisclosed civil matter at the courthouse.
After the second tip, around 1:30 p.m., access was limited and officers were screening people entering the facility.
When the suspect arrived around 2:30 p.m., Frazier said Livingston was taken into custody without incident and officers discovered no weapons on him during a pat down search.
Booked on three preliminary class D felony charges of Intimidation, Livingston remains in jail on a $100,000 cash bond, with no 10 percent allowed, to await formal arraignment per court calendar.
Frazier told The Brazil Times late Friday that the case would be reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for further charges.
Officials, who are continuing the investigation into the case, said further details would not be released at this time to protect the integrity of the case.
