Court records are currently sealed, so further details about the case are unavailable. However, Mia Garcia, a spokeswoman for the Arizona Attorney General, said the allegations did not stem from any threats about an attack over Fourth of July weekend.

Khan is being held without bond in Maricopa County Jail.
