LOS ANGELES (AP) — An arraignment has been postponed for a Yale dropout who was arrested for investigation of making online death threats against children and charged along with his father with illegal weapons possession.

Los Angeles County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison says 21-year-old Eric Yee is expected to be arraigned Oct. 16 in San Fernando Superior Court.

Yee's bail was reduced to $100,000 from $1 million at a hearing Wednesday.

Robison says Yee's father, 62-year-old Roger Manfoo Yee, was also charged with illegal possession of an H&K M-94 assault weapon.

He hasn't been arrested.

Calls seeking comment from a lawyer for Eric Yee and to a listing for Roger Yee were not returned.
