Arrest made after black campaign worker threatened at early-voting location

 

 

Police arrested a man for allegedly harassing and threatening to assault a black GOP campaign worker at an early-voting location in Charlotte Wednesday afternoon, according to CBS affiliate WBTV in Charlotte.

 

The incident happened around 2:30 p.m. at a voting location in the 11000 block of South Tryon Street, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. Officers arrived in response to an armed man threatening a campaign worker at a voting location.

 

Officials say a black man said he was working at the voting location when he saw the armed man in the parking lot with a camera taking pictures or recording the polling location. Police say he approached the campaign worker, and began hurling racial slurs, according to a report from CMPD.
