Police have arrested a man they say threatened to shoot up a Washington County, Pennsylvania, polling place on Tuesday, reports WPXI.
Christopher Queen allegedly arrived at the South Franklin Fire Hall just before 9 a.m. and told workers he was promised a gun and money if he voted a “straight party” ticket.
Poll workers say the man became angry when they informed him he was not registered to vote.
He then threatened to come back with a gun and shoot up the polling place.
“Witnesses told me an elderly poll worker was shaking uncontrollably after he left,” reported WPXI correspondent Cara Sapida.
