A former California firefighter has pleaded no-contest to threatening to injure or kill Palo Alto's police chief "Rambo''-style.
Santa Clara County prosecutors say 48-year-old Andrew Jeffrey Jentzsch faces a year in jail after pleading to felony counts of threatening to commit a crime resulting in death or great bodily injury.
He will be sentenced July 20.
Jentzsch, who resigned from the Palo Alto Fire Department in 2003, used the Palo Alto Online forum on March 22 to threaten police Chief Dennis Burns. The Palo Alto Daily News says he made
his point by referring to a "Rambo'' movie in which the title character opens fire on his foes with a machine gun.
Jentzsch had tried to rescind his resignation letter and he was angry that the city refused.
