Tulsa police arrested a convicted sex offender they said threatened to blow up the jail.
Police said Daniel Zawec went to David L. Moss jail on Oct. 15 around 1 p.m. to sign up as a homeless sex offender, but detectives got information that Zawec was not homeless. They said he was living with his sister at a home that is near a school and Zawec is not allowed to live there.
Police said they asked Zawec to stand up and put his hands behind his back but he refused saying, “I ain’t going nowhere.” After he refused to comply several times another officer was called and used a taser on Zawec.
Police took him into custody and said he threatened to kill the officers and blow up the building.
"Do we know if he has the cabability to do that? No we don't. But he made those threats and we take those threats very seriously," said Ofc. Leland Ashley with TPD.
He said throughout officers' careers they have individuals that make threats towards officers.
"it just kind of goes with the job," he said.
Zawec faces charges of failure to comply with sex offender registration act, terroristic threats, and resisting arrest.
