R. Kelly Supporter Arrested For Threatening Prosecutors, Accepting Payments For Ammunition

An Illinois man has been arrested for threatening federal prosecutors involved in the New York criminal case against R. Kelly, a representative for the U.S. Department of Justice tells Billboard.

Christopher Gunn, a resident of Bolingbrook, Illinois, was arrested on Saturday and made an initial court appearance on Monday (June 27) before Magistrate Judge Young Kim in Chicago. He was ordered to remain detained without bond pending a detention hearing Wednesday; the Department of Justice is seeking his removal in custody to New York. He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.

In a court document obtained by Billboard, Gunn is charged with “knowingly and intentionally transmit[ing] in interstate and foreign commerce communications containing threats … that would result in the death or seriously bodily injury [sic]” of three Assistant U.S. Attorneys who participated in Kelly’s prosecution, identified in the filing as Jane Doe-1, Jane Doe-2 and Jane Doe-3.
