Blotter: Man reports threatening texts, calls from employee

A lawn service employer was threatened over the course of a couple days by his employee, police said. According to reports, the 25-year-old man told police a male employee in his 30s was threatening him through phone calls and text messages after he questioned why the employee didn’t finish his job Saturday.

Police said the suspect threatened to send the Aryan Brotherhood to his residence to “take care of him.” Reports show the victim and the suspect are in the process of going to court over a civil dispute. Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for the Denton police, said police are investigating the matter.
