Port Washington Man Threatened to Shoot Town Hall, Cops Say
A Port Washington man has been accused of threatening to shoot out the windows of North Hempstead Town Hall with a shotgun in retaliation for town workers removing trees from his property.
Port Washington and Nassau County police arrested Michael Olson at his Revere Road home Wednesday on a charge of making a terroristic threat.
Third Squad detectives alleged the 59-year-old suspect was irate when he called the town’s 311 call center and made the threat that prompted the deputy town supervisor to temporarily evacuate the building.
Investigators apprehended Olson at his home two hours after the call was made, police said.
Olson will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
