Neil Cooper, 42, of Idyllwild, failed to appear for his Trial Readiness Conference on Oct. 17. Consequently, Judge Kelly Hansen issued a bench warrant for Cooper and set bail at $350,000.

He was arrested in January for threatening great bodily harm on an individual and attempting to prevent or dissuade this person who might be a witness from reporting or testifying, both felonies. Enhancements to these charges include use of a weapon, and willfully resisting or obstructing arrest.

He also has prior strikes according to the District Attorney’s Office filings.
