CHICAGO (CBS) — A 30-year old west suburban man was ordered held on $500,000 bail for allegedly threatening the lives of a former judge, a police chief, and a police officer.
Michael Kirollos, 30, has been charged with three counts of threatening a public official.
DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said Kirollos called the Westmont Police Department on Friday, and left a message that he intended to blow up the department, and kill Chief James Gunther and another officer.
Later the same day, Kirollos allegedly called the DuPage County Courthouse and left messages threatening to kill former Judge Mary Beth O’Connor, Berlin said.
According to Berlin, O’Connor had presided over a domestic battery case against Kirollos last year. He was found not guilty by reason of insanity, and O’Connor ordered him to seek outpatient psychiatric care.
Berlin said, when Kirollos was arrested for the domestic battery incident against his father in the domestic battery case, police had to use a stun gun to subdue Kirollos, who was acting “irrationally.”
Kirollos was arrested Wednesday at his father’s house in Joliet. Officials said he resisted arrest.
Berlin said a judge on Thursday granted the prosecution’s request that Kirollos be examined by a psychiatrist to determine his mental health and ability to stand trial.
