Denver police have arrested a Colorado Springs man for sending racially and sexually offensive e-mails to state Rep. Rhonda Fields, including one that said he hoped she would meet the same fate as a congresswoman who was shot in the head.

Franklin Glenn Sain, 42, was arrested Friday on suspicion of harassing Fields, D-Aurora, and unlawfully attempting to influence a public official.

Sain told police he was "just voicing some frustrations" about the Aurora legislator's efforts to tighten state gun laws.

Sain admitted sending Fields emails laced with profanity and racial and sexual epithets and leaving her similar voicemails.
