ST. LOUIS – A Missouri man has been assigned to a mental health court program after he made threatening phone calls to Six Flags St. Louis and sent threats via Facebook to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 40-year-old Ethan Aron was sentenced Tuesday as part of an alternative court program after pleading guilty to two counts of making a terrorist threat and three of felony harassment. Authorities say he called Six Flags more than 30 times over a three-day period in October and told a worker he would “shoot up” the amusement park. Prosecutors say he also made threatening calls to the city hall in Eureka, Missouri.

Charging documents say he then created several Facebook accounts that he used to threaten the lives of detectives and Post-Dispatch employees.
