A 48-year-old Kinmundy man was arrested for disorderly conduct after allegedly chasing another vehicle and reportedly threatening the life of the other driver.
Marion County Sheriff's Deputies say Troy Geiler of Kinmundy Road allegedly drove up behind a vehicle driven by Jud Wilkins of Almany Road in Kinmundy on the North Hotze Road. Geiler then reportedly tried to ram Wilkins vehicle, run it off the road, and then passed him and tried to force him to stop.
Wilkins told deputies he backed into the Shakesphere Oil Parking Lot where Geiler allegedly opened the door of Wilkins' vehicle and told him he was going to die. Wilkins said he was allowed to leave after telling Geiler he was going to call the sheriff.
Wilkins then proceeded into Salem where he reported the incident to Salem Police. Geiler posted $120 bond and was later released from the Marion County Jail.
