A Columbia County man was arrested Tuesday after threatening to blow up a voting precinct after being told he was in the wrong location.
Weston Harper, 62, arrived at Voting Precinct 108 at Elim Church, 470 Furys Ferry Road. When he tried to vote, he was told by poll workers that the church was not his proper precinct, and he was given the information on the correct place to vote, according to Maj. Steve Morris with the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.
Harper began arguing with the poll workers and made the statement “I’ll come back and blow this place up,” Morris said.
Deputy Marta Cruz, who was working at the polls, arrested Harper who is being charged with making terroristic threats.
