UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WMAR) - A judge has ordered a GPS monitoring system for the man accused of calling himself the 'joker' and threatening to shoot up his workplace.
At a status hearing Thursday, Neil Prescott was ordered to home detention and to wear the GPS anklet until at least his next status hearing on September 11.
Prescott is also not allowed to have any access to any firearms.
Prescott has been charged with using the phone to make threats to his workplace on July 27. Police say he threatened to load his guns and shoot everyone. About two dozen firearms were recovered from his Crofton apartment.
