Police Arrest Glen Burnie Man After He Threatens ‘Batman-Style’ Shooting

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)– Police arrested and charged a Glen Burnie man for calling the Office of Child Support Enforcement in Annapolis and threatening to kill employees and himself.

Detectives say James Armstead, 37, called the office on Aug. 7 and said he would carry out a “Batman-style” shooting, referring to the shooting at the Aurora, Colo. movie theater last month that left 12 dead and injured 58.

Annapolis police say Anne Arundel County police searched Armstead’s home and although they did not find any weapons there, they found evidence that he was looking into getting an AK-47.

Armstead was taken into custody and handed over to the Annapolis Police Department. He has been charged with threatening to injure a state office and two counts of phone misuse. He is being held on a $60,000 bond.
