A soldier was arrested after giving a statement threatening to assassinate Vice President Mike Pence.
A 22-year-old National Guardsman from Pennsylvania was accused of threatening to kill Vice President Mike Pence, officials said. Pence was in town for the 16th-anniversary observance of Flight 93 crash.
William Dunbar, of Berlin, Pennsylvania, was on duty at the Army National Guard Training Center when he said, “If someone pays me enough money, I will kill the vice president,” Richland County cops said.
Dunbar did not just do this once, but twice on Saturday. Witnesses reported it to their commanding officers.
Dunbar was arrested and taken to Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center for evaluation and then to county prison.
He was charged with two misdemeanors, one for terroristic threats and another for disorderly conduct. His bond was held on $250,000.
