Authorities took an Arkansas man into custody on this week under suspicion that he made dozens of phone calls threatening Don Lemon and other CNN staffers.

The Baxter County Sheriff’s office said they arrested Benjamin Craig Matthews after receiving a complaint from the Atlanta Police Department, and they are preparing to charge him for multiple counts of terroristic threats and harassing communications. The office cited audio recordings which suggest Matthews made around 40 calls to CNN Headquarters in Georgia, the contents of which included “general harassment, threat of bodily injury, and calls threatening the life of a CNN journalist.”
