A Chicago man was arrested and is being held on $750,000 bail after allegedly making telephone threats against Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

King Heard, 64, allegedly dialed 311 on March 7 and reportedly told the operator that Emanuel "don't own Chicago. I'm going to vacate everybody and I'm going to lay him down," according to the Sun Times.

The call lasted 1-minute, 20 seconds and included other garbled statements. After King, who served time in 1991 for making threats against a public official, hung up, 311 operators called his number back and recognized his voice on the answering machine.
