Florida man who reportedly threatened the governor and attorney general is in the Broward County Jail tonight.
53-year old Joshuah Enoch Mancinni was arrest on May 1st. Authorities say Mancinni made death threats against Broward County officials.

“He has a history of threatening other state officials including Governor Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi,” said Plessinger.

A Florida man with a history of threats against public officials is in jail after making death threats against Broward officials.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested 53-year-old Joshuah Enoch Mancinni on May 1 at his Miami Beach home.
An FDLE spokeswoman says Mancinni is being held in the Broward County jail on a $150,000 bond.
Mancinni was arrested after sending a letter to the Broward County Sheriff's Office threatening the sheriff and local judges. In the past he has threatened Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Jeb Bush.
An FDLE report sent to Scott's office mistakenly said he was arrested for threats against the governor.
Mancinni is charged with a second-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
