PHOENIX - Arizona authorities say they've arrested a New York man accused of making threats on Twitter against two Turner Broadcasting anchors who infuriated him with their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says 48-year-old David Lee Simpson of Bath, N.Y, was infatuated with Arias and became upset by the two female anchors' comments.
Arpaio declined to name the two anchors because he says Turner Broadcasting asked his agency not publicly identify the victims.
Still, he says one of them works out of Atlanta and the other out of New York.
An indictment that charges Simpson with three counts of computer tampering and two counts of stalking hadn't yet been made publicly available late Monday afternoon.
