A Jackson contractor was arrested Tuesday after he walked into the Jackson Police Department and made a death threat just after 10 a.m., police said.
“He said you better get a cop up to the planning department because someone is about to die,” Jackson police Lt. Roger Schultz said.
The Jackson Police Department and the planning department are both in Town Hall.
Paul Rivers, 67, was detained almost immediately, Schultz said. Rivers admitted to making the threat and was arrested for terroristic threatening, Schultz said.
“He is upset with the planning department and their practices related to construction projects,” Schultz said.
Rivers remains in the Teton County Jail.
