TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) A 37-year-old man faces two misdemeanor charges of telephone harassment over an allegedly threatening call he made to the Kansas governor’s office.
Stephen J. Thibodeau remained in the Shawnee County jail in Topeka Tuesday night on $25,000 bond. Authorities said his last known home was Columbia, Mo., though he said in court appearance last week that he and his family were moving back to Salina.
Thibodeau was arrested last week at a Topeka motel after Gov. Sam Brownback’s office reported receiving what authorities described as a threatening call.
The Shawnee County district attorney’s office filed a complaint Friday alleging that Thibodeau harassed two employees of the governor’s office. Each count could be punished by up to a year in jail.
