Jan. 4 (UPI) -- A Utah man was indicted in federal court Wednesday for threatening to attack a movie theater and kill President Donald Trump.

Travis Luke Dominguez, age 33, of Midvale, Utah, is accused of making several violent threats between Nov. 13. and Dec. 31 to anonymous tip lines. He was charged with 11 counts of threats against the President, threats to injure others and conveying false information.

"I'm going to kill the sexist racist homophobic President Trump today," Dominguez allegedly said on Dec. 4, when Trump visited Utah to announce his plan to shrink two national monuments, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. "Nothing you can do to save President Trump nor stop me pigs."

"I'm a Navy Seal...I woke up and decided going to kill the president Donald Trump today," Dominguez is accused of saying in another threat. "Please forgive me and then I will die by suicide by cop."

Dominguez is accused of making at least seven anonymous tips to law enforcement where he said he or someone else would carry out attacks, including the bombing of a movie theater in South Jordan and mass shootings at several local businesses.

Dominguez allegedly logged into public WiFi system with his personal email address to send the attacks, which authorities say helped them track him down.

"Dominguez would constantly be in the District using the Wing Nutz Wi-Fi when most South Jordan threats were reported," prosecutors said, according to Deseret News.

He was arrested on Sunday during a traffic stop near the movie theater he allegedly threatened to attack, federal authorities told FOX 13.
