SWAT team responds to text threats

Posted:

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say tactical officers were called to a home near the Chippewa and Eau Claire County border after a father in a custody battle sent threatening text messages.

Eau Claire County Sheriff Ron Cramer says a man in his 20s was threatening three people, including two children Monday night. Cramer says his texts implied that no one would have to worry about the custody fight in the morning.

Two area tactical units were sent to the man's trailer. Cramer says the man was arrested without incident and no weapons were found. WEAU-TV (http://bit.ly/qxRMS5 ) says the man was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
