Ohio man accused of threatening Boehner to be released

CINCINNATI (AP) – A judge has ruled that a former Cincinnati-area bartender accused of threatening to kill then-Speaker John Boehner is of low risk to the community and will be released to his family.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Black ruled Tuesday at a hearing on Michael Hoyt’s mental stability.
Authorities said Hoyt threatened to kill Boehner with a gun or by poisoning his drink.

In July, Black ruled Hoyt was insane at the time of the offense, threatening to kill a U.S. official. He found him not guilty and ordered evaluation at a federal medical center.

Hoyt appeared via video conference from a Butner, North Carolina, center. The judge says Hoyt will live initially with his father while receiving treatment and monitoring that he is taking his medication.
