  • Police arrested Erlyndon Joseph Lo, 27, of Plano, Texas, on Saturday for threatening deadly force against a Dallas abortion clinic. The day before, Lo had filed a court document at the Plano federal courthouse announcing his intention to go to the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas and “use deadly force to defend the innocent life of another human being.” His court filing sought a restraining order against law enforcement. His two charges are using interstate commerce to communicate a threat, and threatening force to intimidate and interfere with clients and employees of a reproductive health service. If convicted, Lo faces up to six years in prison. FBI agents said threatening and erratic behavior by Lo in recent months had already put him on their radar. [Dallas Morning News]
