JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - A Southern Indiana man is behind bars accused of intimidation and threatening to harm several law enforcement officials, including a Clark County judge.

Police say James Eastridge, 45, sent an email to the FBI alleging a police coverup, false imprisonment, sexual assault, and police spying on him.

Eastridge made threats to over a dozen people, saying in the email, "I'm going to kill these *expletive* covering up their racketeering and police corruption..."

"This is a situation where an individual is threatening to be homicidal and I'm going to move on that immediately," said Jeremy Mull, the Clark County Prosecutor, "and put that person in jail and make sure they receive treatment that they need in order to try to prevent violent things from happening."

Mull said Eastridge is being held on a high cash bond to make sure everyone involved is safe.
