Man who called for Elton John's death on YouTube arrested

A Georgia man who posted a video on YouTube of himself calling for Elton John's death has been arrested for making terroristic threats.

Atlanta Police Sgt. Curtis Davenport says Neal Horsley was arrested for making terroristic threats early Wednesday in Carrollton, about 50 miles west of Atlanta. Davenport would not say who Horsley is accused of threatening.  Horsley's son, Nathan Horsley, says he believes the arrest is connected to the video about the musician. Neal Horsley complains in the video about John's comments in a magazine interview last month that Jesus Christ was gay.

Horsley was being held Thursday in the Fulton County jail on $40,000 bond.  John's publicist, Fran Curtis, had no comment.
