SALT LAKE CITY — A man with a history of violence is facing new charges after police say he threatened a mass shooting at a movie theater.

Jeremy David Thomas, 33, of South Salt Lake, is facing a felony charge of making a terroristic threat and misdemeanor assault after a police encounter last month.

Officers say an intoxicated Thomas threatened a mass suicide bombing and/or mass shooting at the Century 16 theaters at 3300 S. 125 E.

Police were originally called to the area after Thomas allegedly threatened to kill a man and his family.

Court documents say the arresting officer asked Thomas if he was making a terroristic threat.

“Yes I am, go ahead and charge me with it,” he replied, according to court records.

Considering Thomas’ history, prosecutors are especially concerned about the threats.

His criminal record includes charges of intoxication, trespassing, simple assault, aggravated assault, and attempted possession of an explosive device.
