No charges have been filed against a Saline County man who allegedly threatened to bring guns to the county tag office and begin shooting up the place.

According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, details of the incident that occurred on October 30th, have been sent to the Saline County Attorney’s Office.

Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News that the man was frustrated when he could not resolve his tax and tags issue last Wednesday afternoon and began shouting.

An employee behind the counter hit the alert button to summon deputies for help.

The man’s name has not been released.

Sheriff Kochanowski says in a world where people are already on edge about shootings in public buildings, that citizens need to pause before they speak, “Those kind of utterances send up all kind of antennas these days,” he said.

WHO IS THE SHERIFF PROTECTING??? ONCE AGAIN IF IT WAS ANYONE ELSE THEIR NAME WOULD BE PLASTERED IN THE PAPER, ON RADIO AND TV. THIS IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH SALINA DOUBLE STANDARD. EVIDENTLY THE SHERIFF IS PROTECTING SOMEONE WHETHER IT BE A HIGHER UP IN SALINA, A FRIEND OR A RELATIVE.

Typical tactics of the sheriff an another reason he should resign. Probably the guy is someone that ran his re-election campaign. He sure has all the media outlets in this town in his back pocket.

I have to concur with the other 2 posters something smells from high heaven concerning this. Why did Jeff Garretson not ask why they are hiding the identity of this person? A top notch reporter would have pressed the issue.
