I'm sorry to hear this happened to your wife.

The answer to your question is yes, you can make a police report against him.

Under FL law, the crime here would actually be referred to as aggravated stalking.

The aggravated stalking statute covers death threats that cause the victim to be in fear for their safety, or the safety of their loved ones.

Based on the information you shared, this would be considered a 1st degree misdemeanor, which means it is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
