Kat Von D

Obsessed Fan Found ...

NOT Arrested for 'Columbine' Threat

6/19/2014 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0619-michael-nun-youtube-01
Cops have located the man who made an ominous threat to "go Columbine in Los Angeles" because he feels Kat Von D ruined his life -- but TMZ has learned he was NOT arrested. Not yet, anyway.

Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD, with the help of Iowa cops, made contact with Michael Nunn somewhere "outside of California" -- and questioned him for tweeting threatening messages about getting revenge on Kat.

Sources tell us police grilled Nunn about the threats -- including the Columbine reference -- and based on their conversations ... they believed there was no reason to take him into custody or place him on a 5150 psychiatric hold.

We're told cops don't believe he's planning to act on the threats, and more than anything else ... he just needs to be evaluated and get some kind of treatment.

Law enforcement is keeping a lid on Nunn's exact location -- we presume to prevent him getting swarmed by media -- but we're told police plan to stay in touch with him in case things change and an arrest is necessary.

And this kiddies is exactly why twitter and facebook are horrible stupid things to use. Once you put something out you are damned forever by it.
Hopefully some day the sheeple will want their privacy back and stop exposing everything to the world.
Nawww. people are way to dumb to smarten up

I've thought about this and I have to say, in my 46 years I've run across three men that looked like this guy and ALL THREE turned out to be CRAZY! One was murdered, one is in prison for murder, and the third is far, far away and I hope he stays gone.

These are the laws that need to change if we want to bring down the number of mass shootings. It has got to be easier to put someone on a mental hold. Right now they basically have to look a doctor or law enforcement in the eye and say "I want to hurt myself or others", for them to be able to do anything.

Yes, in the past when it was easier to put a mental hold on someone, it was abused. So we learn from history to make sure we don't make the same mistakes.

Being obsessed with her should be reason enough to put him on a psych hold.

He looks like that dude from the Emo band who was married to Ashley Simpson. Can't think of his name.
