Man accused of email threats to Governor Gregoire

Posted: Updated:

EVERETT, Wash. A man accused of sending threatening emails to Governor Chris Gregoire is being held on $25,000 bail.         

The Washington State Patrol arrested Eric Moody Friday for investigation of threats to the governor and unlawful possession of a firearm. 

In court papers, Washington State Patrol detectives wrote that they believe the man is "disturbed and delusional."         

Moody, 38, is accused of sending threats to the governor's website earlier this month. Detectives allege one message read, "I'm going to kill the Governor for real."         

WSP says when detectives initially showed up to talk to the man, he told them he just wanted to take the governor out to dinner to discuss issues.         

WSP spokesman Bob Calkins says the agency must take all threats seriously.
