Posted January 16, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he threatened Mayor Nancy McFarlane.
Alec Dane Redner, 27, of 11024 Brass Kettle Road, was charged with communicating threats and threatening an executive, legal or court officer. He was being held Thursday in the Wake County jail under a $250,000 bond.
According to arrest warrants, Redner on Monday threatened "via web form submission" to "physically injure" McFarlane. It was unclear whether the threat was in an email or an online post.
Court documents outlining his conditions of bail note that he "has (a) history of extreme violent behaviors." His criminal record includes several driving offenses and one charge of assault on an officer or state employee, all in 2010, according to Department of Public Safety records.
Redner was ordered not to contact McFarlane "by any means" if he is released on bail.
