A Stevens Point man who allegedly threatened to shoot police and had a high-powered rifle, body armor and ammunition in his home is being held on a $300,000 cash bond.
David Tejeda, 29, appeared Wednesday in Portage County Circuit Court. He was detained following what police call a “high risk” traffic stop at about 6 p.m. Saturday in Portage County.
Police say they were acting on a tip that Tejeda was making threats to kill police officers at a Stevens Point convenience store.
“I’m going to rain hell on them,” Tejeda allegedly said. “I’m going to call them and prepare them for a gun fight. I’m gonna turn up on three cops out here and I’m gonna rain on them like God.”
Tejeda is facing several felony charges including making terrorist threats, possession of a firearm as a felon and possession of body armor as a felon. He is due in court Aug. 26 for a hearing.
