Kurt William Havelock, 35, turned himself in to authorities Feb. 3 after driving within sight of University of Phoenix Stadium during the Super Bowl with a rifle and 200 rounds of ammunition. He said he changed his mind.
Havelock told authorities he was upset that the city of Tempe denied him a liquor license application for a Halloween-themed bar.
Before the planned attack, the indictment said, Havelock sent several letters to Web sites and news organizations. Havelock's writings included an eight-page manifesto in which he warned of an ``econopolitical confrontation,'' according to the FBI.
A phone message and email sent to Havelock's federal public defender Jeffrey Williams were not immediately returned Tuesday evening.
