NEW YORK (CNN) – Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor isn't just facing tough scrutiny, she's the target of some peculiar death threats, too.
According to a complaint filed with the Manhattan District Attorney's office, John Zaubler "called 911 and stated that he was going to kill Judge Sonia Sotomayor by blowing her up."
The bizarre complaint charging Zaubler with one count of making a terrorist threat also says that his motive for the assassination was "because he did not want his girlfriend to have to go to prison," although it provides no further detail.
The complaint also states that Zaubler threatened to blow up President Barack Obama.
The 48-year-old New York resident allegedly made the call just after 10:30 p.m. on May 30. Zaubler was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court Friday via videoconference from the courtroom at Bellevue Hospital where he was being held, according to a report in Newsday.com.
He pleaded not guilty and was ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation. Calls to Zaubler's attorney were not immediately returned.
