Man Arrested After Making Threats at Capitol Hill Club

Officers arrested a man who made threatening statements after being denied entry to a Capitol Hill bar early Saturday.

Witnesses said the intoxicated 28-year-old suspect was prevented from entering the night club, located in the 600 block of E Pine St., 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.
