According to court documents, 69-year-old Wallace Grove Godwin entered Rep. Scott Taylor's (R-VA) office on Thursday and threatened to shoot him and two of his staffers over a supposed discussion about marijuana policy.

“Scott is having an event this Saturday. I am going to get my shotgun and do something about this. I will just handle this myself," Godwin allegedly told Taylor's staffer. He then pointed at two staffers and told them “You two are next."

Gowdin, who is expected to be in a federal court this afternoon, faces up to 10 years in prison for threatening a member of Congress.
