Milton man who called 911 and threatened to kill a judge who ruled against him in a child custody case was arrested Saturday, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.
Deputies said Alan McCarty, 35, threatened to shoot Judge Stasia Warren, a Seventh Judicial Circuit Judge who oversees cases in Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns and Volusia counties.
McCarty is heard yelling at 911 dispatchers in four expletive-laced calls made Friday that were released by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. McCarty starts the first call saying he wants to report a crime “that’s about to happen.”
McCarty tells the dispatcher he has a gun pointed at the Volusia County Courthouse. He makes demands that the judge be brought out so he can “execute” her and that his kids be given to him. McCarty also calls the dispatchers “stupid” and other insults.

Deputies traced the call to Northwest Florida. A courtroom deputy recognized McCarty’s voice from another “hostile” message he left on the judge’s assistant’s phone in July and analysts with the Volusia County Crime Center matched previous recordings, said Andrew Gant, a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
McCarty faces a felony charge of corruption by threat against a public servant. He is jailed in the Santa Rosa County Jail until he’s transferred to Volusia County.
McCarty is also accused of making threats against his ex-wife and her kids while a no-contact order was in place, according to an incident report from the Volusia County Sheriff Office. The no-contact order stemmed from a domestic violence accusation.
