CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Coral Springs police arrested a Miami man for allegedly sending dozens of threatening text messages after he was served a restraining order.

James Gonzalo Medina, 34, was charged with aggravated stalking after injunction for protection.

According to the arrest affidavit, Medina was sending the threatening text messages to a Coral Springs man and his wife.

When police spoke to Medina over the phone, Medina stated, "It's going down" to the Coral Springs officer.

Medina was then served a restraining order.

However, a week later on August 17, Coral Springs police responded to the same victims' home because of additional threats. Police say the victims received about 50 text messages from Medina.

One text stated, "By next week, Ima bomb ya....Bring him, I will buy a gun of the street and rampage Vilma's church...#Murder she wrote."

"Vilma" is the mother of one of the victims.

Police say Medina also made several threats through the texts to burn, bomb, and shoot people and buildings.

Medina is being held on $500,000 bond.
