Scott Haven of Kaysville was arrested on June 4, 2019 for reportedly making over 2,000 calls to the U.S. Capitol and threatening members of congress. According to an unsealed complaint in U.S. District Court, Haven is charged with one count of interstate transmission of threats to injure. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
The complaint stated that Haven called congressional offices in Washington, D.C. and made threatening remarks on seven of the calls. One call that was made said “he would like to slice [Senator 1]’s head off and [Senator 2]’s head, too.”
FBI agents went to Haven’s house on November 13, 2018 and talked to him about the threats that were made. He said the calls were, “just meaningless threats that were made out of frustrations.”
On April 25, 2019 another call was made where another congress person was threatened. Haven said he would, “use his 2nd Amendment Right to blow the head off” the member of congress. In May of 2019, two more threats were made.
Haven appeared in court before U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Paul M. Warner on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 where he was ordered to be detained, “pending resolution of the case.”
