TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – A Tucson middle school teacher was arrested for allegedly making a threat against an Arizona state senator and a Show Low store that sells Trump merchandise.
A Navajo County Grand Jury indicted Donald Glenn Brown, saying he made a “threat to commit an act of terrorism” on July 4. The indictment does not specify how or to whom the threat was made.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety confirmed that Brown, 58, was arrested in Tucson on Sept. 7 for “death threats made to state Sen. Wendy Rogers on July 4.” He was originally charged with making terroristic threats and booked into the Pima County Jail.
Authorities believe Brown, using a false identity, sent the email from his mother’s residence in Pinedale, about 15 miles from Show Low.
A representative from The Trumped Store, 580 E. Deuce of Clubs in Show Low, provided KOLD News 13 with a copy of the email. In the plague-filled message, the sender threatens to shoot people in the store, including Rogers.
Rogers, a Republican who represents the 6th Legislative District, was in Show Low for the Independence Day parade.
Brown is a music teacher at Pistor Middle School, 5455 S. Cardinal Avenue. A statement from the Tucson Unified School District said Brown has not been in a classroom since his Sept. 7 arrest.
