The Arizona Attorney General’s Office announced it has charged a Phoenix man accused of sending a threatening email to Maricopa County Supervisor Bill Gates.

The charges say Ryan Stuart Hadland sent the email in question following the 2022 midterm election. He’s charged in Maricopa County Superior Court with a misdemeanor count of using electronic communication to knowingly terrify, intimidate, threaten or harass.

If found guilty, Hadland faces up to six months in jail and a $2,500 fine.
