OKLAHOMA CITY -- A federal grand jury has indicted an Oklahoma City man for threatening President Barack Obama and another world leader.

According to court records, Mario Edward Garnett posted a message on the official White House website threatening to "blow [the president's] brains out on national TV" if he ordered a strike on Iran.

The email also read:

"You scheming hypocrite. You don't mean anything to me. Youre (sic) just one dirt bag out of a handful plotting evil behind closed doors. Ive (sic) got plans for some of you, here shortly."

The email also threatened Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and threatened to "settle some scores on behalf of Israel and America's victims and on behalf of those they continue to oppress. I'll kill president and farmer alike. Damn Israel. GOD Commands perfect Justice."

If convicted, Garnett could be sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay a $250,000 fine.
