Man arrested for allegedly threatening Gregoire
A Pierce County man is in custody for allegedly making an online threat to Governor Chris Gregoire. The Washington State Patrol picked up Robert R. Locke, of the Graham area, on Tuesday afternoon.
In a statement, the patrol reports Gregoire's office received the still unspecified threat early Tuesday morning. The message was traced to Locke, and he was picked up while walking on a Pierce County street about six hours later.
Detectives reported their arrest took place without incident.
Locke was booked into Pierce County jail, where he's charged with one felony count of threatening the governor or the governor's family.
