A woman is facing charges after she admitted to making death threats online against Gov. Ron DeSantis, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

HCSO said Danyele Callaway, 20, made "life-threatening statements" on the governor's website while submitting a request for an in-person meeting.

Callaway has had several previous encounters with law enforcement and public servants, including battery and domestic violence arrests along with anti-government statements, the sheriff's office said.
