John David Watkins III
Via KSAT San Antonio, TX:
Northeast Bexar County resident John Watkins III is accused of making death threats to members of an amateur radio club.

Watkins was arrested on two counts of making a terroristic threat, and booked into jail Saturday.  Records show he has been released after posting $4,000 bond.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, radio club members determined someone was making threats, using racial slurs and creating “white noise,” or static, on the channels that they use for broadcasting.
