The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office arrested a man they said made threats against members of the Porter City Council.

The threats came after the council voted to fire the Porter police chief. The Sheriff's Office said they became aware of the threats on Dec. 3.

The threats appeared on an unofficial Porter City Facebook page, and included vandalism and the burning of council member's homes.

Investigators made contact with the alleged poster, 24-year old Jarrett Daniel Stallings of Pryor. Stallings grew up in Porter and still has family living there.

The information was turned over to the district attorney's office and an arrest warrant was issued for using an electronic device to threaten or harass.

On Dec. 9 Wagoner County Sheriff investigators traveled to Pryor and with the assistance of the Pryor Police Department took Stallings into custody.

The Sheriff's Office expects to make further arrests in this case.

I'm referring to the how he's being portrayed by the media. The town of porter seems to appear to want to take the eye away from what's going on in their town. The comment made by him was far from threatening to them just showing them their lack of respect for law enforcement could backfire on them.

This is a joke. Apparently you can get arrested for trolling. They're twisting his words around and making him sound like a terrorist. Typical media outlet for getting A story and not the story!

Dirty Sermon (aka unwashed mass) Maybe something in the water. It's pretty close to Muskogee.

Is it inbreeding or just something in Porter's water?
