Bloomer Man Charged With Terrorist Threat

Matthew Gensler of Bloomer is charged with two felony counts of making a terrorist threat for threatening to blow-up a home in Eau Claire. According to the criminal complaint, he told a co-worker he was going to break into their home, turn the gas on, and blow it up. He also threatened to hit his 15-year-old daughter with his car. Later, at that home, he slammed a door on the co-worker’s hand. The victim said he appeared to be on drugs. When speaking to police, Gensler denied making the threats, but admitted he was a recovering drug addict and did not remember much of the day before. Gensler returns to court in May, facing up to seven years in prison.
