Armed man threatens campaign worker


(WCNC) – Police in Charlotte, North Carolina have charged a man accused of threatening a campaign worker at a polling place Wednesday.

CMPD said officers responded to an early voting location on South Tryon Street about an armed suspect threatening a man around 2:30 P.M. 

The victim, Derek Partee, told police he was working at the polls when he saw the suspect in the parking lot with a camera.

When the worker approached the suspect, identified as 28-year-old Jason Donald Wayne, police said Wayne uttered racial slurs toward the worker and threatened to assault him — showing a handgun. The gun was later determined to be a BB gun and was seized as evidence.
