U.S. Attorney Jim Letten charges that Dugas called the Louisiana Public Service Commission and threatened to blow up a nuclear reactor because he was angry about his utility bill.

While serving a search warrant Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office arrested Dugas and handed him over to federal custody.

He faces 10 years in prison a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
