      Jarvis Britton, man charged with threatening President Obama on Twitter, is denied bond, staying in jail

      The man accused of tweeting death threats to President Barrack Obama has been denied bond by a federal judge today.

      25-year-old Jarvis Britton will now stay in jail at least until October 16 when he is arraigned.

      Britton was indicted by a grand jury on a charge of threatening the president on Tuesday, after which his brother made a plea to the judge to allow him to take third-party custody of his brother if granted a release on bond.

      Britton will be held in the Jefferson County Jail.
