SALT LAKE CITY — A man who was arrested in January and then got into more trouble once he was taken to jail for allegedly threatening to "blow this place up" has been charged again.
Jeremy Adam Ohm, 30, who is listed as homeless, was charged in two separate cases in 3rd District Court on Monday.
He was charged with drug possession, a class A misdemeanor, possession of drug paraphernalia, a class B misdemeanor, and interfering with an arrested officer, a class B misdemeanor, for an incident that allegedly happened on Dec. 4, according to charging documents.
Ohm was also charged Monday with making a terroristic threat, a second-degree felony. On Jan. 25, while incarcerated at the Salt Lake County Jail, Ohm attempted to break the overhead sprinkler in his cell but fell off a table, the charges state. Deputies took Ohm to be checked out by medical personnel, but he became agitated and "threatened to blow them away, kill them, and 'Blow this place up and this place would die,'" according to charging documents.
"Later, Ohm repeated the threats to blow the place up, kill the cops, and he was going to kill the president as well," the charges state.
The charges come on the heels of a similar case filed March 20. Ohm was charged with making a terroristic threat for a comment he made on Jan. 6 while incarcerated, when he again threatened to blow up the jail, according to charging documents.
On April 8, Ohm was convicted of failing to stop for law enforcement and sentenced to a year at the Utah State Prison.1 comment on this story
Ohm, who has a lengthy criminal history, also made headlines in 2013 when he got into a car that was left running and drove off with two children, ages 2 and 3, asleep in the back seat.
He hit another car as he drove off and initially did not pull over for police once he was spotted. He was eventually arrested and the children were not harmed.
Later that year, he pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted child kidnapping that were amended to third-degree felonies, according to court records, and was sentenced to up to five years in the Utah State Prison.
