Days after prominent anti-masker Chris Saccoccia, a.k.a. Chris Sky, was arrested and charged with uttering death threats and assaulting a police officer, new details have emerged about alleged threats he made about Ontario's Premier Doug Ford.

Court documents obtained by various outlets, including CTV News and The Toronto Sun, state that Saccoccia apparently called Rob Carbone, the head of the "Republican Party of Canada" on May 12, saying that he wanted to kill Carbone, Ford and "all the premiers in Canada."

Carbone told The Sun that the anti-masker "snapped" when Carbone told him that he would no longer be financially supporting his movement.

"He started yelling and screaming from the top of his lungs and said that he wants to kill Doug Ford and shoot him in the head," said Carbone.

Days later, on May 19, police officers arrived at a York address to arrest Saccoccia. In an attempt to flee, he "drove directly" at a Toronto Police constable, who had to jump out of the way to avoid being struck, according to a press release.

Saccoccia later turned himself in, appeared in court that same day, and was released on bail. His next court date is at College Park on Tuesday, July 8 at 10:00 a.m. He is prohibited from contacting Ford or Cabone, as per the terms of his bail.
