A Florida creep sent a woman roughly 10,000 text messages during a 12-day span, including threats that they would “die together,” deputies said.
Nicholas C. Nelson, 48, of Parkland, was busted in Georgia after a woman told deputies in Broward County that she started getting a torrent of texts from Nelson in April despite the fact that she had rarely spoken with him before and only met him a few times through a mutual friend, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
“You and I, We die together,” Nelson wrote the female acquaintance in one creepy correspondence, according to an arrest affidavit.
In another, Nelson allegedly promised the woman that he’d be the “only man” she’d ever be with again. Some of the nonsensical messages also took a violent turn, deputies said.
“I’m going to start blowing up planes to prove my point,” Nelson wrote the woman on April 17 along with a photo of an apparent airport parking ticket, according to the arrest affidavit.
Four days earlier, deputies said Nelson threatened the woman in a text and left clothing in the front yard of one of her relatives.
Nelson also allegedly made references to driving tanks across America, blowing up churches and suicide in the ceaseless cascade of communication.
“I’m not suicidal, not even in the least,” Nelson wrote, deputies said. “But I’d rather die [than] spend time in jail.”
Nelson, who appeared in a Broward County courtroom on Monday, is facing charges of aggravated stalking and writing intimidating and threatening messages. He’s also facing aggravated staking charges in Palm Beach County involving a different victim, although details of those allegations were not immediately available, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
Nelson asked a judge on Monday to lower his $500,000 bond, but she was unmoved, saying she believed “there is cause for concern” regarding his alleged actions. He remained in custody at the Broward County Jail on Wednesday, jail records show.
