Psychological exam sought for NC man accused of threatening to kill President Biden

The lawyer for a Gastonia man accused of threatening to kill President Joe Biden wants a judge to order a psychological exam for his 27-year-old client.

David Kyle Reeves was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this month on four charges related to a rash of angry and erratic phone calls he is accused of making to the White House and Secret Service, The Charlotte Observer previously reported.

The most serious charge, making a threat against the president of the United States, carries up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Reeves also is charged with two counts of interstate communications with intent to injure, which have a maximum combined punishment of 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine; and with influencing a federal official by threat, which comes with up to 10-year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine.

The man's prior arrest record indicates that he needs medical attention and that it may not be safe to release him back into society.
