Man Jailed In Threats To Mayor, Judge

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A man has been arrested and now indicted on charges he made threats to Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and an administrative judge, Georgeanne Bradley, who had heard the man’s workman’s compensation case.

Alfred Blackwell was arrested October 9th, according to a police report, one day after threatening, obscenity-laced letters were received by Goodman and Bradley. The report indicates Bradley sought a restraining order at that time.

The indictment accuses Blackwell of two counts of intimidating a public official.

The police report quotes a detective as saying Blackwell had made an earlier threat in June, indicating he would shoot up Las Vegas City Hall and go after any law enforcement that showed up.

Police say Blackwell freely admitted writing the letters when they confronted him last month.
