MARION, Ill. - A kid who made the news here in January with bizarre behavior at a city council meeting has now been charged with a very serious crime, alleged to have used the obscene McClatchy-owned forum topix to perpetrate it.

Treston J. Miller, 21 of Marion, was picked up at his residence Monday, August 13, on a charge of Making a Terroristic Threat.

On Tuesday, Aug. 7, Miller was brought to the attention of authorities after he was alleged to have posted on topix a threat to shoot up Lincoln School in Marion, the posts beginning to appear on the 3rd. Authorities paid a visit to Miller on the morning of the 7th. At 11:39 a.m. that same day he sent a message to one of his contacts, which message stated "WTH, Why do Police shows up at my door?" Said contact replied that they didn't know, and asked Miller what he'd done. Miller said that two detectives had showed up and said someone had posted he was going to shoot up Lincoln School and the police had traced his IP address to his Westboro Baptist post and "assumed" it was him.

Miller called the local detectives "FBI wannabe's."

Miller said he went by "Westboro Baptist" on topix and was at Court Street at that particular moment, advising that he was waiting to go to the police department to "figure this out and see the supposed screen shot."

Later, he told the contact that said post "didn't come from here" and that it "came from a store or business," but that's not what authorities learned when they traced back the IP.

Miller is being held in the Williamson County Jail without bond, awaiting an appearance before a judge.

Below are screencaps that alerted the public, and subsequently the cops, as posted on August 5.
