 PHOENIX (AP) - A restaurateur angry at being denied a liquor license threatened to shoot people at the Super Bowl and drove to within sight of the stadium with a rifle and 200 rounds of ammunition before changing his mind, federal authorities said.
Kurt William Havelock said in a manifesto mailed Sunday to media outlets that he would ``shed the blood of the innocent,'' according to court documents.
The documents say he was armed with an AR-15 assault-style rifle when he reached a parking lot near University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, where pre-game activities were happening.
``He waited about a minute and decided he couldn't do this,'' FBI agent Philip Thorlin testified at a detention hearing for Havelock on Tuesday.
Havelock's father testified that his son then called his fiancee and met his parents at his Tempe condominium.
``He was very upset, he was sobbing hysterically,'' Frank Havelock said. ``He said, 'I've done something terribly, terribly wrong.'''
rged Monday with mailing threatening communications. He is being held without bail. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer, and additional hearings have yet to be scheduled.
Federal authorities say Havelock was upset because his establishment was recently denied a liquor license by the city of Tempe, like Glendale a Phoenix suburb.
In the eight-page manifesto, Havelock said that the original site of the planned massacre was Phoenix's Desert Ridge Marketplace near Scottsdale, but that ``scum and villainy'' are in Scottsdale and that instead he would ``shed the blood of the innocent.''
``How many dollars will you lose? And all because you took my right to own a business from me,'' the manifesto said.
