Police in Ontario, Canada, have arrested a 26-year-old man after he allegedly sent a death threat to Michael Jackson via email.

ADRIAN POFFLEY was arrested in Canada on Friday (20AUG04) after a message sent to Jackson via the Santa Maria Court House, where Jackson was appearing for a pretrial hearing into his child molestation case, in California.

Police authorities in Santa Barbara enlisted the help of police in Ontario, who searched Poffley's home and made an arrest.

Poffley is scheduled to appear in court next month (SEP04). The details of his threat and his motive have not been released by the authorities.
