The Nov. 6 election in the United States brought with it a wave of young voters, as well as bringing out violence.
Christopher Queen, 48, went to the polls roughly an hour after they opened at 7 a.m. Upon being told that he wasn’t registered to vote at the South Franklin Township Volunteer Fire Department in western Pennsylvania, he threatened to come back with a gun and ‘shoot up’ the polling place.
The threat caused alarm among the workers who heard the threat.
Queen left the scene and was arrested without incident a few blocks from the polling place.
Law Enforcement agents say they believe Queen was suffering from some sort of mental disturbance. Queen has a criminal history that includes charges of simple assault, disorderly conduct, and harassment.
Queen was charged with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He remains in custody, unable to post bail of $10,000, according to court documents. It is unclear if Queen has retained an attorney.
