KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas City, Kan., man has been indicted on charges of threatening the city's police chief and other law enforcement officers.

Federal court records show 42-year-old John D. Hudson was arrested Thursday, one day after being indicted on four counts of retaliating against a witness.

Prosecutors allege Hudson told someone in 2012 the police officers were "rats" who would be "eliminated" for giving information to FBI agents. The FBI at the time was investigating unspecified criminal civil rights violations.

The indictment also accuses Hudson of saying in March 2013 that he would "start taking them out one by one." The threats allegedly referred to Police Chief Rick Armstrong, Capt. Greg Lawson and other law enforcement officers.

No one answered Hudson's phone Thursday, and court records do not list an attorney.
