Charges Dropped for Man Who Threatened Elton John

Charges Dropped for Man Who Threatened Elton John

Charges were dismissed Monday against Neal Horsley, the militant Georgia antiabortion activist accused of making terroristic threats against Elton John after the singer suggested Jesus was gay in an interview with Parade magazine.

According to a CBS/Associated Press report, “65-year-old Neal Horsley was charged with making terroristic threats, criminal defamation, and using the Internet to disseminate threats against the singing legend. Prosecutors say Horsley posted threats against John online and that he picketed outside John's Atlanta condominium with a sign that said ‘Why Elton John Must Die.’”

Fulton County superior court judge Kimberly Esmond Adams said Horsley’s actions did not warrant criminal charges, and she dismissed the case, CBS/AP reported.
