A 61-year-old Tekamah, Nebraska farmer has been accused of making threats against a grain buyer so he could get extra money for his corn.
Leo Johnson faces felony charges of making terroristic threats, extortion and stalking in Washington County. He's charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and resisting arrest in nearby Burt County.
A court document says Johnson twice called a corn buyer in Blair in September and demanded an extra 15 to 20 cents over the going price for corn, otherwise "things were going to get bloody."
Johnson remained in the Washington County Jail on Thursday, pending $200,000 bail.
