Anton Calouri of Federal Way was officially charged Wednesday with making a threat against the president and assaulting a federal officer. The charges stem from an expletive-filled and moderately incoherent email Calouri allegedly sent to the FBI, and the effort to arrest him that ensued Tuesday at the apartment he shares with his mother.

Cop killing spree...just over the hill...(sic)
Not surprisingly, the email was enough to get the attention of law enforcement, with officials from the FBI and the Federal Way Police quickly descending on Calouri's apartment. Before making contact, law enforcement agents spoke with the apartment's manager, who described Calouri as "a hothead," and noted his short temper.
Federal prosecutors say when authorities arrived at Calouri's door Tuesday afternoon he didn't answer for several minutes. When he did, he was sporting a black bandolier with a large knife attached to it that was filled with shotgun shells. He also allegedly had a revolver stored in a holster strapped to his ankle. Most pressingly, however, prosecutors say Calouri was carrying a fully-loaded pump-action shotgun behind his back.
When Calouri was ordered to show his hands, and eventually revealed the shotgun, Special Agent Bryan Molnar and Federal Way police officer Andy Hensing launched into action, according to charging documents - with Hensing grabbing the gun's barrel, and Molnar grabbing Calouri. Though he scraped and continued to disobey commands, the two law enforcement agents were able to take Calouri down and disarm him.
Once Calouri had been subdued, charging documents indicate authorities commenced a search of the home - finding a marijuana grow op inside a tent within the apartment, a Dracko stockless AK47 type rifle in the kitchen, a Bushmaster AR15 rifle and a loaded 100-round drum magazine under a bed, and a loaded Desert Eagle .45 caliber pistol with two loaded magazines in a cot by the front door - where Calouri's mother told officers he sleeps. Along with all of this, a crapload of ammunition was found throughout the apartment. When asked whether there was anything inside the apartment that could potentially harm law enforcement officers, charging documents indicate Calouri responded, "There are things inside that go boom" - a cryptic message that led to the nearby apartments being evacuated and the bomb squad being called in.
Authorities interviewed Calouri's mother at the scene, who told them that her son spent a lot of time on the computer (though she didn't know what he did on it), and held negative views of President Obama. She reported that he'd made negative statements about Obama as recently as that day.
Once placed in the back of a cop car, authorities confronted Calouri and asked him why he thought they were there. Charging documents indicate he was elusive, saying, "I think I do, but I don't want to say." When presented with a printed copy of the email he allegedly sent the FBI and asked whether he'd written it, Calouri allegedly responded, "Possibly." When asked whether he had any issues with President Obama, charging documents Calouri responded, "You don't have high enough security clearance, call the CIA or run it up the chain of command."
A conviction for making a threat against the president carries up to five years in prison, while assaulting a federal officer carries a sentence of up to 20 years. A detention hearing has been set for Monday.
