OKLAHOMA CITY -

A mother turned in her own son for threatening to blow up a building in the OKC metro.

Oklahoma City Police arrested 51-year-old Christopher Maidt on Thursday.

According to Oklahoma City Police, Maidt expressed some anger toward law enforcement after his past visit to the jail on Jan. 14.

Maidt claims his St. Christopher medal allegedly disappeared during that arrest.

"He was very upset about that and basically held law enforcement responsible," said Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow.

He allegedly made two separate threats. In the first threat, Maidt said he planned to blow up the Oklahoma City Municipal Courthouse. Officers gave him a warning, but 10 minutes later, Maidt phoned in another threat to kill officers.

"We take any threat very seriously," Wardlow explained.

Maidt also warned he was one of God's chosen ones and that everyone in a police uniform would be sent to hell. Instead, Maidt was sent to jail. His bond is set at $2,000.
