TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man previously convicted for dealing drugs and committing theft has been charged after allegedly threatening police and a judge.
Court documents say that on Saturday, Dec. 16 at around 9:30 a.m., a deputy with the Sheriff's Office was transporting 40-year-old Curtis Lloyd Kiser from his home to the Tippecanoe County Jail when he made the threat.
During the transport, he became angry saying that he hated police and would shoot the deputy in the face.
Kiser also said that he would cut the head off of a judge who had presided over a court case in which he had been previously involved.
Kisers past criminal history includes a 2004 felony conviction in Tippecanoe County for forgery and dealing narcotics, a felony conviction in White County in 1998 for operating while intoxicated resulting in serious bodily injury, and two more felony convictions in 1999 in Tippecanoe County for possession of a controlled substance and theft.
He has been charged with two counts of intimidation and with being a habitual offender.
