A judge ordered GPS monitoring for a Maryland man accused of calling himself a “joker” while phoning in a threat to his workplace.

The judge also barred Neil Prescott from any access to guns during a hearing Thursday in Prince George's County Mental Health Court, the Baltimore Sun reported. Prescott has been receiving outpatient mental health treatment for the past week.

He's charged with using a telephone to make threats. Prescott threatened on July 27 to load his guns and shoot up his workplace, police said. They recovered about two dozen weapons and ammunition in his Crofton apartment.

Prescott's attorney, William Brennan, gave the judge a report from a social worker and a doctor that found Prescott was “not a danger.”
