A man in Michigan faces up to five years in prison for threatening three Democratic members of Congress over the phone, according to The Detroit News.

Randall Dellinger of Flint allegedly threatened to kill Michigan Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow, and Rep. Dale Kildee. He was charged in federal court Thursday with making threats.

According to court filings, Dellinger has claimed that after being imprisoned for detonating a “grenade simulator,” police implanted radio transmitters in his body to control his movement. He believes the transmitters have given him leukemia.

In a profanity-laced phone call, Dellinger warned Kildee that the congressman would “be one dead motherfucker” if he did not do something about the transmitters.
