Man Arrested After Making Threats at Capitol Hill Club

Officers arrested a man early Saturday for making threatening statements after he was denied entry to a Capitol Hill bar.

Witnesses said the intoxicated 28-year-old suspect was prevented from entering the night club, located in the 1500 Block of Broadway, shortly after midnight. He then became upset and reportedly said “all white people should die” and “all gay people would be killed.” The suspect also pantomimed he had a gun and reached toward his waistband before walking away.

Police quickly located the suspect near the club. They did not find a gun, but arrested the man and booked him into King County Jail for investigation of malicious harassment.
