All facts would need to be known first. A threat can be construed as that and not criminal until some action is taken to carry it out. If becomes ongoing, depending on the facts, a PPO could be looked into.

Most likely, nothing will come of this, but I would need more information to know for sure. A threat of this nature may be incorporated into a larger offense of stalking, or possibly an assault if the threat put the other person in a reasonable fear for their safety. It is unlikely that a prosecutor would choose to prosecute such an occurrence unless the threats were very credible and serious.

Don't say anything to the police or anyone else about the case until you speak with a lawyer. Be proactive and retain a lawyer now; one that predominantly practices criminal defense.
