Del. man charged over alleged government threat
NEW CASTLE, Del. — Police in Delaware say a man angry about his sewer bill was arrested after he suggested someone should crash a plane into a county government center.
New Castle County police say 45-year-old Darren Spayd of Newark got upset Tuesday after being assessed a late fee.
Police say he started cursing at county workers and threw the change he had received back at one. Police say several employees overheard him suggesting someone should fly a plane into the building.
A Texas man angry with the Internal Revenue Service recently flew a plane into an office building in Austin, killing himself and one IRS employee.
Spayd was charged with disorderly conduct and terroristic threatening. He was released on $2,500 bail and ordered to have no contact with the government center. No phone number was listed for him.
