A Richmond man was arrested after he allegedly complained to his apartment management company that there were “illegal foreigners” in the parking lot and he was “ready to shoot to kill them.”
David L. Nelson, 53, of the 400 block of Cunat Boulevard in Richmond, was charged with disorderly conduct, a Class 4 felony.
A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Nelson sent an email to his property management company, Lakes Management, on August 9.
In the email, Nelson complained about “illegal foreigners hanging around the parking lot,” the complaint said.
“My gun is ready to shoot to kill them. The revolution had started. Down with commie democrats!” the email said, according to the complaint.
An arrest warrant was issued for Nelson on August 12 and he was arrested the same day.
Nelson was released from the McHenry County Jail after posting 10% of a $20,000 bond, records show.
Court records show Nelson’s only criminal history in McHenry County was a felony case in 2006 when he was accused of bribing a police officer in Harvard in order to get out of a traffic ticket.
Nelson pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and his felony charge was dismissed in that case.
A status of preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 6.
