A man accused of making death threats to U-W Athletic Director Barry Alvarez has been ordered to take a mental competency exam. Leonard Taylor was arrested in Indiana last Friday. He made his first court appearance in Dane County on Thursday, on charges of stalking and telephone harassment.
The 32 year-old Taylor allegedly made more than 20 calls to the athletic department threatening Alvarez and his family. Taylor's father says his son suffers from paranoid-schizophrenia and his been off his medication.
Taylor played for the Badgers from 1995 to 1998, while Alvarez was the head football coach.
