A Florida man is accused of texting a woman he barely knows too much — way too much — and for sending ominous threats among the thousands of messages.
Nicholas Nelson, 48, of Parkland, allegedly sent a woman he met through a mutual friend about 10,000 texts over a two-week span back in April, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
“You and I, We die together,” Nelson wrote in one of the texts, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the publication. In another, he allegedly wrote, “I’m going to start blowing up planes to prove my point," accompanied by an image of an airport parking ticket.
He also allegedly made references to taking a cross country trip to blow up churches.
“I’m not suicidal, not even in the least,” he wrote, according to the affidavit. “But I’d rather die [than] spend time in jail.”
The woman who received the texts claimed she's only spoke to Nelson a few times in person.
In at least one incident, Nelson allegedly took the incessant texting to another level by leaving some clothing in the victim's relative's yard.
Nelson was arrested in Georgia and extradited to Florida on Saturday, CBS in Miami reports. It's not clear what prompted the arrest.
He has been charged with aggravated stalking, and writing intimidating and threatening messages, according to online jail records. He is being held in an aggravating stalking case out of Palm Beach County regarding a totally separate victim, according to the Sun Sentinel. Details of that particular case have not been released.
Nelson is being held on a $500,000 bond.
