He also was convicted of threatening a university administrator in Delaware and a bank employee in Missouri.

White was released from prison in 2011 and had been living in Lexington, Va.,ut he was charged in May with leaving the area without authorization and was arrested in June in the Mexican resort town of Playa del Carmen.

Media outlets are reporting that a federal District Court judge in Roanoke has ordered that White undergo a psychiatric evaluation.
