ANDERSON, Ind. -- A Greenfield, Indiana man faces felony charges after he threatened a hospital executive and pretended to be a member of Vice President Mike Pence's security detail, court documents show.

The suspect, Johnny W. Agee, is accused of making threats over Twitter and via text to the CEO of St. Vincent Hospital. Agee was upset over the denial of a medical procedure. 

After the shooting in Texas on Nov. 5, the CEO received a protective order against Agee. When a Greenfield police officer served him with the order, the officer said Agee went "ballistic."

Since the protective order was issued, Agee posted on his Twitter page that he works with the vice president's security detail and that made him immune from prosecution.

Agee also went to the Madison County Prosecutor's Office, saying he can't be prohibited from contacting anybody because he is FBI Secret Service and CIA, according to the probable cause affidavit. 

He also made threats to come back and shoot up the Madison County government building, the documents show. 

A look at Agee's Twitter account, known as "*Spec*Agent Agee*" at @ReaganGood1st, shows more than 40,000 tweets, with many about Indiana or national news. 

On Nov. 9, he tweeted, "#Attention #Kevin #MadisonCountyGroup ya can kiss my Federal Law Enforcement A**"

He also routinely ends tweets with "Signed Agent Agee." Pence's Twitter account also follows his.  

After reviewing the threats, texts and tweets, Dep. Prosecutor Koster decided there was enough probable cause to arrest Agee. 

He faces the following charges:

  • Invasion of privacy
  • Intimidation
  • Impersonation of a public servant
