A man who fought with and threatened security officers outside a federal office building in Kansas City has been sentenced to 15 years without parole.

James Everett Jr., 32, of Kansas City, Kansas, was sentenced Tuesday for threatening a federal law enforcement officer, resisting a federal law enforcement officer and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Prosecutors said in March 2016, Everett was yelling and threatening a judge when he approached the Richard Bolling Federal Building in downtown Kansas City.

Four officers from the Federal Protective Service confronted Everett in front of the entrance. He threatened to blow the officers brains out, began fighting, bit one officer's finger and spit on another. Two Kansas City police officers helped to subdue Everett.

A loaded handgun was later found in Everett's car.
