An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper interviewed King, who showed him text messages from Thompson that implied Butts and Thompson wanted to get even with her. The patrol, which provides security for the governor, is the agency that investigated the threats.
Both Thompson and Butts told troopers they made the bomb threats to get King in trouble, according to the affidavit.
Troopers arrested both of them on complaints of threatening to use a bomb to unlawfully damage real property and false impersonation of another.
Butts was booked into the Oklahoma County jail at 10:30 p.m. Friday and was released Sunday on $12,000 bail. Thompson was booked about 2:30 a.m. Saturday and is being held without bail, according to jail records.
