St. Croix County (WQOW) – A man accused of threatening to shoot up his New Richmond workplace agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors on Wednesday.
Nicholas Cherrier’s employer told investigators Cherrier informed coworkers he had an AR15 in his trunk and made comments about buying armor-piercing ammo and a bulletproof vest to “shoot a bunch of kids.”
He later said he was joking.
Wednesday, Cherrier pleaded no contest to making a terrorist threat and disorderly conduct.
Judge Edward Vlack put him on probation for a year and ordered him to be on GPS monitoring.
He is also prohibited from possessing any guns.
