A former soldier in Baton Rouge is behind bars, accused of making threats against the President of the United States, White House Officials, Governor Bobby Jindal and Louisiana Congressional Leaders. 

Abram Williams is being held at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison without bond.  Prison leaders told News 2, he is being held there for the United States Secret Service.

Sources close to the investigation told News 2, the threats were so credible, it was imperative to get Williams off the streets immediately.

A quick search of the internet, revealed that Williams posted many of his thoughts on the website "Linked In."  Williams wrote, "I am aggressive at pursuing extreme goals and accomplishing whatever I set my mind at.  I have gone from military to corporate America.  I like a challenge and can't accept failure."

On the website, Williams also lists his interests as tactical weaponry and sport shooting.

Williams is expected to make an appearance in Federal Court this week where he may have to answer to the allegations.  Workers at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison were unaware of any federal charges.
