Federal agents are trying to find Timothy Bradley Darling after he allegedly made threats that he was going to shoot IRS agents in Detroit. 

According to federal court papers, Darling called the IRS last Friday and was recorded as saying, “I’ll show up to the IRS downtown Monday morning with a gun. I’ll be shooting one employee for every $100 you owe me.”

Agents went to his home in Carleton. 

According to court documents his mother said he no longer lived there and she thought he was living in his car.

She filed a personal protection order against him because of several threats he recently made against her - including in texts.

The feds were able to contact Darling by phone and he allegedly said, “Leave me alone, take the f---ing money.”

He has made no attempt to actually harm any IRS agents in Detroit.

Darling is wanted in violation of federal law covering assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers or employees. He could get one year in prison for the threats, 8 years if he did physically assault a federal employee and 20 years if he used a gun or deadly weapon.

The feds want to get Bradley into custody before he can harm anyone - including himself.
