Police called after TV station threats


A caller to Television Park on Tuesday repeatedly threatened to shoot a WJBF reporter with a shotgun.

According to a Richmond County sheriff’s incident report, officers were notified about 2 p.m. after a man made the threats to reporter Michael Miller.

The caller called the station at 1336 Augusta West Parkway again and told Miller he would be “blasted in the face with a shotgun.” The caller also threatened to kill everyone in the studio.

Miller told police he had just finished a story on Green Dot scams when the calls began. Green Dot cards are prepaid, reloadable debit and credit cards.
