Georgia man accused of threatening Bush

ATLANTA - The Secret Service on Friday arrested a 37-year-old man, whose twin brother was executed last August in Texas, for making a threat against President-elect Bush.

Bruce Roberson of Norcross was arrested after Gwinnett County police were called to his home Thursday night to quell a domestic dispute. He told officers he planned to harm the former Texas governor, ''to take him down.'' Police said Roberson told them Bush ''stole the election and he's not going to get away with it.''

U.S. Magistrate E. Clayton Scofield III ordered Roberson be held without bail until a hearing on Dec. 28.

The twin, Brian Keith Roberson, was executed by injection Aug. 9. He was convicted in the 1986 stabbing deaths of an elderly couple that lived near him in Dallas.
