The former volunteer assistant coach as USC Upstate who was arrested earlier this week for threatening Athletic Director Mike Hall also faces a charge for allegedly sending photos of his buttocks and male genitalia to a female employee of the university, GoUpstate.com reports.
On July 13, Colton Hodge, a former volunteer track and field coaching assistant, posted a video of himself on YouTube. In the video, Hodge asks S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley to help in his quest to become the athletics director for USC Upstate.
The video contained profanity and thinly veiled threats against Hall, including phrases such as the athletic director was "flirting with death," and "you can die in the blink of an eye."
On Tuesday, USC Upstate Police, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI, arrested Hodge and charged him with threatening the life of a public official and two charges related the dissemination of obscene material. The obscenity charge was related to Hodge's allegedly sending photos of buttocks and an erect penis to a female staff member at USC Upstate.
