NEW YORK, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A Philadelphia man who allegedly phoned in death threats to 911 against New York's mayor and police commissioner was charged with making terrorist threats.

Officials say Jeffrey Fisher, 48, of Philadelphia repeatedly drove to New York City and phoned in the threats against Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Commissioner Ray Kelly from pay phones on Manhattan's West Side between May 12 and Dec. 10, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Fisher allegedly made such statements as, "There are bullets now aimed at the mayor's head everywhere!" and "Commissioner Kelly's office, explain to him ... (we) know where his family lives. If he continues his 9/11 bull----, his family is going to feel it."

Fisher was arrested Dec. 11 and faces 10 felony counts for allegedly phoning 911 with the threats.
