AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - An Augusta man has been arrested after investigators say he made threats against the Augusta Commission on Facebook.
On Sept. 24, the Richmond County Sheriff's Office was notified by a member of the Commission about the alleged threat. The threats, allegedly made by 59-year-old James Palmer of Augusta on the Augusta Political Watch Facebook group, threaten bodily harm against commissioners.
The posts read:
Investigators spoke with Palmer, who told them he made the posts. He also said he used the wrong choice of words, but would never harm anyone.
Palmer was arrested and booked into the Charles B. Webster Detention Center, charged with terroristic threats and acts.
