NEWTON, Kan. (AP) _ A 38-year-old south-central Kansas man has been charged in connection with making a threat against former President George W. Bush.

Eric W. Bradley, of Newton, has been charged with one count of making a threat against a former president.

According to the indictment, Newton threatened on March 20 to injure and kill Bush.

He has been accused of telling U.S. Secret Service agents in Pawnee County that he would ``strangle the life out'' of Bush. He also allegedly said he would ``do whatever I could, including my own death, to kill'' Bush.

If convicted, Bradley faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
