The FBI on Wednesday arrested a 32-year-old Palms Spring, Calif., man on charges of making intimidating phone calls to a Democratic Washington state Congressman Jim McDermott that included threats to kill him, his family and friends.

Charles Turner Haberman was slated to appear in federal court in Riverside, Calif. on Wednesday.

Authorities said that Haberman made threatening expletive-laden calls to McDermott’s Seattle office on Dec. 10 around midnight. The rants included outrage over Congressional spending.
