The State of Utah has dropped charges against a man who threatened Governor Herbert in February.

52-year-old Brian Biff Baker, of Kearns, was arrested Feb. 2 after police received calls that he had been text messaging an acquaintance indicating plans to shoot and kill Governor Herbert. Baker was found several blocks from the Governor’s Mansion with a gun and ammunition and arrested.

Baker faced both federal and state charges, but the state charges were dropped Thursday in favor of federal charges, which carry a stiffer penalty. Baker is now facing federal charges of transmitting threats and possession of ammunition.
