  • PHOENIX (AP) — A New York man has been arrested on allegations that he made threats on Twitter against two national newscasters who angered him with their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial, Arizona authorities said Monday.

    David Lee Simpson of Bath, N.Y., was infatuated with Arias and became upset by comments from the two female anchors, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said.

    Investigators found guns, handcuffs and other items in Simpson’s car after taking him into custody in Bath, Arpaio said.

    The sheriff declined to name the two anchors because he says Turner Broadcasting, which owns CNN and HLN, had asked his agency not to publicly identify them. But he did say one works out of Atlanta and the other out of New York.

    An indictment that charges Simpson, 48, with three counts of computer tampering and two counts of stalking had not yet been made publicly available late Monday afternoon.

    Simpson also is accused of threatening a Phoenix woman who defended the anchors online.
