Wilson is accused of leaving a voice message on Sidney Police Chief William Balling’s phone on Mar. 9 saying “he was going to return to Sidney and shoot police officers,” court records read.

Two days later, police said Wilson “left a second message on Chief Balling’s voicemail telling Balling that he was going to shoot him in the (expletive) head.”

Investigators said Wilson was upset with how a previous incident involving police was handled, according to court records.

A judge set Wilson’s bond at $20,000 during his initial appearance Tuesday.
