Man accused of threatening to blow up unemployment office pleads not guilty

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- A not guilty plea was entered Tuesday for a man police say made threats to blow up an Eau Claire building.

48-year-old Thomas Danielson waived a reading of information and entered not guilty pleas in Eau Claire County court.

Danielson faces a charge of bomb scares and telephone harassment.
A criminal complaint says in November he called the Wisconsin Unemployment Office on South Barstow Street complaining about his check. It says he told an employee he was going to blow up the unemployment office and later left a threatening voicemail.

Danielson later denied making any threats. If convicted he faces more than three years in prison.
