It's the second time a person has been charged with threatening to kill the National MP this month.
On May 7, a 25-year-old was arrested at a Lower Hutt property for allegedly threatening Brown after the MP had criticised Green Party co-leader Marama Davidson's visit to a Waikato Mongrel Mob hui.
Further inquiries are being made by police in relation to the threats received.
Police are unable to comment further, as the matter is now before the court.
