A man accused of sending death threats to stars including hip-hop supercouple Jay-Z and Beyonce has been arrested and charged by police in Detroit, Michigan.

Leon Desmond Barrett is alleged to have written more than a dozen letters between December 2006 and April this year (09) and sent them to celebrities including former American footballer Jerome Bettis.

According to police, some of the hand-written notes referred to a reported dispute between Barrett and Bettis’ family, with one stating, “We do not want to have a gunfight with them but if we have to, we will. I guess it (sic) going to be another Virginia Tech. massacre all over again in Detroit.”
