Man arrested for making threat against President Obama

July 27th, 2013 - By Steve James

A Memphis man has been charged

with threatening the life of President Barack Obama.

The U.S. attorney’s office said Friday night that

39-year-old Darrin Young, who is also known as Darrin Fleming, was

charged in a criminal complaint. Investigators listening to phone

conversations between Young and a Shelby County jail inmate heard a

conversation earlier this month in which Young discussed plans to

“burn,” “kill” and “murk” Obama. A statement from the U.S.

attorney’s office said “murk” is street slang for murder.

Young was arrested Friday and is in custody awaiting

an initial appearance. It could not be immediately determined

whether he was represented by a lawyer.
