A man who sent threatening emails against President Barack Obama and wielded a shotgun when officers approached him for questioning, appeared in federal court today.

A Secret Service spokesman says 31-year-old Anton Caluori was arrested Tuesday at an apartment in Federal Way for investigation of making threats against the president and assault on a federal officer.

U.S. attorney's spokeswoman Emily Langlie says the threat was sent to a general purpose FBI email address.

A Secret Service agent and a Federal Way police officer went to an apartment, knocked and announced themselves for about three minutes, then found themselves facing a man armed with a shotgun when the door opened.

Caluori appeared in court earlier today.
