Police: 'Threatening note' a hoax

A threatening letter has turned out to be a fake and now police said they have arrested the man who reported the crime.

The Cobb County Police Department said that Brett Downing initially told them that he found the letter on his vehicle parked at an officer complex on Powers Ferry Road near Dobbins Air Reserve Base in July.

The note read:

“dear american soldier,

death to you coward women child killer and all the american military
mohammad will show no mercy on you
attacks will come full force
death is to come to you”

Police said they have since determined that Downing placed the letter there himself. They have taken out an arrest warrant for making the false report.
